Design Engineer, EIT
I am participating in key leadership roles in many committees and organizations. I sit on advisory boards and steering committees, participate or lead initiatives, and be an active contributing member. I also act as a mentor to those that are interested in learning from others.
My professional career in STEM is independent from my community involvements. However, I have always been able to find employers that value my extra curricular community work.
I have been able to become involved in some amazing projects and have been nominated for committees or initiatives, for which others appreciate the expertise that I bring.
We need to build a critical mass to advance women in engineering and technology. So far, the work rests on a few organizations and individuals that put in their energy and time. All of us can definitely use more input and support, and since we all value diversity, that is actually only achieved if more come forward and join groups and organizations, and become partners in the goal to advance women in engineering and technology. We also need to bridge to more men as goal sharers. Without collaboration across genders, we don’t move forward.
