N.C. A&T Professor Chosen To Attend The Gender Summit 7
November 6, 2015

North Carolina A&T State University (N.C. A&T) graduate and assistant professor of mechanical engineering, Dr. Cindy K. Waters was chosen as one of four delegates to attend the Gender Summit 7 (GS7) in Berlin, Germany.

The American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) awarded Waters and three female faculty researchers in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) from minority-serving institutions funding from the National Science Foundation to travel to Europe for one week. A mechanical engineer, Waters’ research interests lie in porous metals.

In her application, Waters talked about fostering international relationships and initiating innovative global research projects. AAAS expects the delegates to network and meet potential collaborators in STEM. The goal is to find foreign researchers and institutions, interested in engaging in international collaborations.

GS7 Europe 2015 is designed to advance understanding of when, how and why gender issues in research can produce different outcomes for women and men. The idea is to demonstrate the important intellectual, societal and economic benefits of gender mainstreaming in research.

The two-day summit will feature 75 speakers from Africa, Asia, Europe and North America. Speakers will focus on the benefits of gender equal and gender sensitive research and innovation as well as enhancing the capacity of policy actions to achieve lasting change.

She graduated from N.C. A&T with her doctorate in Mechanical Engineering. She earned both her bachelor’s and master’s in Materials Science and Engineering from Virginia Tech.
