What advice do you have for women engineers starting in their careers?
Speak up, be bold, collaborate with peers and constantly challenge the status quo. You are the driver of your career. Network with coworkers and classmates to ask the tough questions and develop your own plan of what you want your career to look like. Propose career options to your boss and be clear on what is critical to your happiness, whatever that might be. Don’t be afraid to list the things that are important or critical to your happiness at work (working from home, travel, salary, hours, PTO, individual contributor or team member).
