Happy International Women’s Day!
As a woman in Engineering, I can safely say that women are underrepresented in my industry and that there are certain myths surrounding the profession. For example, a lack of female engineers might make some women concerned that it isn’t for them, or that they’ll feel out of place. In response to this, I’d say, why not see it as an opportunity to bring new ideas to the table? Or share your experiences that men might not have thought about or considered?
Some things to think about:
- Would you agree that engineering is underepresented for females?
- Which professions do you think are similar?
- And which do you feel have the right balance?
- Do you think any have a larger proportion of women to men?
- Why do you think this is the case?
- What myths are there related to a particular industry and how should we look at these differently in order to break stereotypes or bust these myths?
Feel free to share your experiences and discuss your views

i think that it doesnt really matter what the proportion of men to women are in a certain job because if we are all for equality it wouldnt matter what percentage of employees are male/female, thats like someone being concerned that 80% of teachers are white therefore we have a problem with oppression to black people and we have to change that
