Today’s woman engineers benefit from a high demand for their talents, as they implore employers to create a diverse and inclusive culture that attracts, retains, and promotes women, and urge peers to punch through the glass ceiling.
It’s clear that the respondents to Woman Engineer magazine’s 29th Annual Reader Survey - our readers - have been been benefiting from a high demand for their talents, breaking through and making their mark in their respective disciplines.
In fact, woman engineers have been thriving in an economy and a job market that entered 2020 and the new decade still strong, with several studies also showing strong hiring intentions and workforce expansions extending from last year into 2020. However, in a stark and sobering turn of events, more recently the economy and the job market have been severely impacted by a global pandemic, causing much more uncertainty this year instead of continuing the brighter outlook that was predicted at the start of this year.
All of this uncertainty on the heels of such a strong economy and job market is a lot to process, especially as the human impact continues to unfold. But as this all shakes out, the advice of respondents to this year’s survey is more important than ever to remember. - especially since they’ve been flourishing in their respective engineering disciplines and they represent a range of experience that takes them from the start of their careers to later in their careers after weathering similar uncertainty in the economic and job markets during the Great Recession and post-9/11, for example.
They urge job seekers to take heart and keep moving forward even in the face of uncertainty. “Persist, work hard, believe in yourself, recognize and embrace your self-confidence, follow your passion, never give up on your dreams, and break through the glass ceiling,” they advise.
In addition to asking our readers to impart their advice to their engineering peers, to further understand the professional and personal accomplishments of our readers for this yearly study, Woman Engineer, once again, queried readers - who represent undergraduate and graduate students, and entry-level employees, managers, supervisors and executives in the public and private sector across all engineering disciplines - about items such as their geographic location, annual salary range, what they like most about their job and what influences their job choice.
Discover more insights in this year’s survey in this issue, learn what the biggest issues woman engineers face in the job market, and find out what advice they have for employers. Then peruse the Top 50 Employers and the Top 20 Government Employers for 2020, as named by readers. In what has become tradition, we tallied survey respondents’ answers about the companies for which they’d most like to work or which they believe would provide a positive working environment for woman engineers.
The employers on the annual the Top 50 Employers and Top 20 Government Employers lists, as named by readers, clearly champion, hire, and promote woman engineers, and understand the value and business benefits of an inclusive and diversified workforce.
