The SE3 Project: Engagement and Gender Equity in the Structural Engineering Profession
This lecture is presented by Rose McClure, PE, SE, Co-Founder of SE3 Project
In early 2016, the SEAONC SE3 committee administered a nationwide survey of employee engagement and gender equity in the structural engineering profession, for which they received over 2,100 responses. The survey investigated a variety of measures of engagement (satisfaction) and equity including, but not limited to, career advancement, compensation, and work-life balance. This presentation will share the most significant findings of the 2016 study, including why 56% of respondents have considered leaving the profession, the prevalence of the gender pay gap, and the importance of workplace flexibility.
The Structural Engineering Engagement and Equity (SE3) Committee is a committee of the Structural Engineers Association of Northern California (SEAONC), whose mission is to study engagement and equity in the structural engineering profession. For more information, visit www.se3project.org.
