Braun Medical Inc., Bethlehem, PA. All rights reserved. 20-0107 Dear Friends, On behalf of the Da Vinci Science Center and the Women in Science and Engineering (WISE) Advisory Council, we are pleased to welcome you to the 2020 WISE Forum, our signature mentoring event! The Da Vinci Science Center is passionate about supporting women in STEM fields and inspiring young girls to follow in their footsteps. In Pennsylvania, the demand for STEM jobs is growing 3x as fast as non-STEM jobs. Baby boomers are retiring and employers report that they cannot find qualified individuals to fill STEM positions. For the Lehigh Valley, it is essential that more women be supported to enter and persist in the STEM workforce. The Lehigh Valley is among the top five fastest growing regions in the Northeast and the fastest in PA. STEM-heavy occupations make up 19% of all jobs, and the Lehigh Valley’s targeted growth sectors for economic development are all STEM-intensive: Advanced Manufacturing and Food and Beverage Manufacturing; High Value Business Services; Transportation, Logistics, Warehousing and Wholesale; Health Care Services; and Life Science Research and Manufacturing. Between 2017 and 2022, the industry sectors targeted for growth have an anticipated replacement demand of 96,826 workers (when taking into account anticipated net employment growth, retirements, and workers transferring into other industries).1 Despite women holding 49% of all jobs in the region, they represent 29% of the STEM workforce. Women have the lowest representation in the engineering and computer and mathematical sciences, where much of the growth in STEM jobs is occurring. The growing demand for a STEM workforce can be met by hiring more women to work in these fields. In addition to this evening’s WISE Forum, the Da Vinci Science Center hosts a variety of programs and events through the year for students and our WISE Network of STEM professionals. We encourage you to check out the WISE Network online (www.davincisciencecenter.org/wise) and find us on LinkedIn for regular updates. Thank you again for joining us this evening as we inspire the next generation of female scientists, inventors, and engineers!

WISE Forum Distinguished Panelists Jill Evans Manager, Customer Service, Bosch Rexroth Jill Evans is the Manager of Customer Service for the Industrial Hydraulics Division of Bosch Rexroth, a global leader in Drive and Control components for a diverse range of industries. Jill recently stepped into a leadership role at Rexroth after 27 years as an engineer in Rexroth’s Plastics Machinery group where she designed and supported hydraulic systems for injection molding and blow molding machines throughout the country. After high school in Southern California, Jill attended Cal State Northridge, majoring in Computer Science and Journalism before moving to Cal Poly Pomona, majoring in Computer Science. While at Cal Poly, she worked part time at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory, working on the flight software acceptance testing for the Galileo project. When Jill decided that a career at NASA or other space-related industries was not the career for her, she left college, got married, and moved to Northern California. It was here that she accept- ed a job in the accounting department of a hydraulic components distributor. It didn’t take long before she moved into the more technical side of hydraulics, moving from Market Specialist to Inside Sales and finally to Technical Coordinator. In this position, she designed and specified hy- draulic circuits for a number of applications. She also served as computer expert in a time where the Personal Computer was in its infancy. She took many courses in hydraulics, one of which was a two week course with Rexroth in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. During her time in San Francisco, she served on the Board of Directors of the Northern California chapter of the International Fluid Power Society for four years and became the first person in California and the first woman in the country to become a Certified Fluid Power Specialist. In 1989, ready for a career change, Jill and her husband moved to Pennsylvania where she accept- ed a position as an Inside Sales Coordinator at Rexroth, intending to go back to school to finish her bachelor’s degree. Those plans were postponed in favor of raising her daughter. In 2008 Jill went back to college. She received her AS in Mechanical Engineering Technology from LCCC in 2012, and her Bachelor’s degree from Temple University in 2016 in Engineering Technology with an emphasis in Mechatronics. In 2018, Jill led a team in Bosch’s Innovation Framework learning about entrepreneurship and developing and marketing new products. Jill has a passion for encouraging young women and girls to pursue STEM careers and has been attending the WISE forum as one of Rexroth’s Table Sponsor Mentors for several years. She serves as a panelist for Lehigh University’s CHOICES program during the summer, and gives career pre- sentations at Parkland High School and other venues. Jill was a charter member of the Bethlehem chapter of Women@Bosch, an employee resource group available to all employees whose mission is to Engage, Educate, and Empower associates. Jill loves kayaking, fishing with her daughter, and spending quality time with her husband.

Lafayette is a proud sponsor of Women in Science and Engineering Cameron Cranley ’20 Chemical Engineering THE POWER TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE PPLWEB.COM WISE Forum Distinguished Panelists Megan McGovern Quality Business Team Leader, Cab Over Product Mack Trucks, Inc. After high school, Megan McGovern decided that she wasn’t ready for another long stint in formal education so she went to work full time. A couple of her experiences were within industrial environments, but for the most part she stuck to the service industry because it had the most flexibility and allowed her to work pretty much anywhere she wanted to live. Megan spent a few years bouncing around North Carolina before deciding it was time to focus on her future and enlisting in the United States Air Force. The 6 years Megan spent serving her country was a game changer for her. In boot camp, when it came time to select career paths, her only question was, “Which one of the options on my list is the hardest to get into?” To be an Egress Systems Specialist, you needed to deadlift 165 lbs. - at the time she only weighed about 155 lbs. She didn’t even put down a second choice - she was simply going to do it. That set the tone for the rest of Megan’s military career as an Egress professional. She was the only female in her career field at every base she was stationed at and she thrived in the rank and structure that the military provided. Megan was promoted ahead of schedule, earned multiple accolades, and completed 2 undergraduate degrees while on active duty. After an unfortunate injury changed her trajectory, she opted to come home at the end of her first tour and pursue a civilian career. Megan’s GI Bill provided her with an opportunity to adjust to civilian life as a full time graduate student. She worked at the Department of Justice’s local DEA office while she earned her next degree. In 2014, she completed a Master of Business Administration degree with a focus in Operations, Logistics and Supply Chain Management, completing enough additional courses to qualify for a post-baccalaureate ISOM certificate. That’s when she joined the Volvo Group’s International Graduate Program. Participants spend 12 months traveling the world studying diverse business cultures and benchmarking world class manufacturing operations. The experience was rewarding in a number of different ways. Not only did Megan gain a lot of personal growth from getting to experience new cultures firsthand, but she was able to build a wide network across the global organization, which has been a key part of her success within the company ever since. After the Graduate Program concluded, Megan spent 3 years working in the regional quality organization providing an interface between the internal manufacturing quality groups and the service managers out in the field with customers. This built up her knowledge base around how customers experience products and what types of issues impact them and their perception of value the most. In 2017, when she was offered an opportunity to relocate to one of their manufacturing sites, Megan was able to take that experience with her to help guide the local team at Mack Trucks. Over the next few years, she went from continuing her work as a field quality liaison to overseeing a portion of the final department as a production manager, and is now back in the quality group as the Quality Manager for the entire Cab Over product line. As a Quality Business Team Leader, Megan’s team monitors the production performance via assembly technician feedback, post-assembly performance testing, sample auditing, and cumulative feedback from the dealers and customers in the field. Her team uses this information to build a working picture of the overall quality, performs root cause analysis on all high impact issues, evaluates processes for improvement opportunities on systemic issues, and provides direct support to the production team. Since 2018, the team has worked hard to reduce the average number of defects per truck found in the field by 60% – an incredible achievement! Since Megan’s time in the Air Force, she has enjoyed being an active volunteer in programs supporting her peers. From coordinating volunteers on base and running booster programs, to helping get internal networking programs off the ground at multiple sites, Megan enjoys seeing people working hard to make their own experience and that of their peers better.
