Change what it means to be an engineer with Susan Kreemer Pickford
“change the narrative of what engineering actually is and who are engineers”
“I quite often joke, I didn’t set out to become a female engineer.”
“I’d rather that we just took a more holistic approach and just treated people like people and came to it from the angle of all the diversity of thinking that we have across the genders and all the different types of cultural diversity and people of different abilities”
“…want to be an engineer? Be an engineer, and be the best engineer you can be.”
Some solutions discussed include:
An engineering item for discussion… Optus Stadium in Perth “because it’s so well placed for people to be able to see it from the city”… “a real connection to country”
An engineer to admire… Sue Murphy “her leadership in the water corporation a really challenging time in the face of dry it. And what she did was led the community to really work closely with her team on the outcome they wanted for Western Australia”. “…she worked very hard on a community engagement strategy”
