Answers by Theresa Brunasso

Hi Mary,

You've asked an interesting question.  It implies that women have qualities that men don't have, but I don't think that's true.  However, I do think that engineering is a great field for women, because there are so few women in engineering.  So, we stand out and are noticed by our managers, customers and colleagues.  That's nice when we come up with a great design, solve a difficult problem, or do any good work.  People remember our successes, and we get recognition for our achievements.
