There have been concerns and questions as to why the number of women considering engineering is reducing and some of those in engineering eventually leave to pursue other careers. The one issue that is constant and often overlooked is the small number of women engineers who young women and girls can look up to.
Tomorrow and every other Thursday we will be running the #tellyourstory series where we will feature various young women engineers who are inspirational examples. Show this to your daughter, niece, sister, and any woman in your circle. Heck, show this to your young son and young men in your circle. We are stopping the math myth. We are encouraging diversity and inclusion. Different is good, different is growth. To all the women engineers out there somewhere, do not shy away always tell your story whenever you get a chance. Your story is different and unique and it’s all someone is waiting to get inspired.
