April 2023 Issue
A monthly forum to share diversity, equity, and inclusion resources.
Welcome to the next installment of Read.Watch.Listen. As a follow-up to Women’s History Month, which occurred in March, we want to celebrate current and future women in engineering. Though they are still largely underrepresented in structural engineering, female engineers are breaking down barriers and making inspiring strides as leaders in their fields. The resources below celebrate some of these women and their accomplishments.
The NCSEA SE3 Committee strives for equity within the structural engineering profession. This month, and every month, we celebrate our female members, including our co-chairs, Amanda Dean and Cambria Flowers.
Read.Watch.Listen is a monthly forum hosted by the NCSEA SE3 Committee to share and promote conversations on diversity, equity and inclusion within the structural engineering profession. Each month, we will curate a series of articles, audio-visual and digital media to facilitate self-education in matters that affect our professional practice as structural engineers. Whether you choose to read, watch, or listen (or all three!), we hope you will join us in this important conversation.
Share your thoughts and/or recommended resources for the next issue at firstname.lastname@example.org.
