The Women in CU Tech Industry Lunch Forum is an informal networking opportunity for women working in local technology companies or women working in technology roles. Dr. von Thaden serves on the faculty at The University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in the Graduate School of Library and Information Science and the Human Factors Division, with affiliate appointments in Industrial and Enterprise Systems Engineering, Psychology, and the Illinois Fire Service Institute. Her research involves the study of information complexity and safety culture in high risk, safety critical sociotechnical systems including aviation, medical, security, and other transportation systems. Her work investigates human factors affecting risk, decision making, information behavior, training, performance, emergency preparedness, crisis response, corporate relations, and regulatory oversight. In 2010 she founded Illumia, a safety consultancy company, and home to the SCISMS, the Safety Culture Indicator assessment tool she developed under multi-year research awards from the Federal Aviation Administration and the Air Force Office of Scientific Research. Illumia (located at EnterpriseWorks) applies her approaches and methods with major industry clients, worldwide. Lunch will be served.
