These are especially interesting times to be a woman student in engineering. Women have come a long way in achieving parity in the workplace, but challenges exist, and the current COVID-19 environment adds an extra layer of uncertainty to decision making and choices for the future. 

WiE is pleased to present to SEAS students an opportunity to hear from recent graduates in various engineering disciplines. As these women discuss their career routes post-graduating, students (especially juniors and seniors) will be able to gather new insights that may help their own process and choices for the future.
