VT-ASQ Presents a Free Webinar: Lean Six Sigma - Five Student Members’ Conference Insights
Overview: Our Vermont Section reached out to several colleges and universities this year to offer engineering, science, and statistics students a one-year ASQ student membership in return for their attendance at the 2021 virtual Lean Six Sigma Conference, hosted by ASQ in March. Their conference fee (student rate) was paid for as well. The goals of this new Section initiative were to:
  • Engage students in the activities of our section and ASQ.org,
  • Gain their insights to quality concepts and how these could influence their studies and career direction,
  • Learn from them how our Section can engage what ASQ refers to as the Next Gen Professional (the last day of the conference was focused entirely on this topic)
  • Contribute to our local colleges and universities (i.e., student scholarships)
Five students, identified with the help of Deans and professors, took us up on our offer!
Their presentations will cover:
  • Topics they found most interesting;
  • What they learned that would most benefit their studies and/or careers;
  • What surprised them the most about lean six sigma;
  • What did they gain from attending the Next Gen professional day (if they did);
  • Their advice for ASQ sections on engaging students more in section activities, including doing this again by VTASQ in 2022;
  • Q&A from you, the attendees!
