Circuits Assembly broke my original article on diversity into two articles. Part 2 ran in January and focuses on mentoring opportunities for women. If you’ve got a daughter in high school or college who is looking for a great start in a technology career, this is a must read: http://www.circuitsassembly.com/cms/component/content/article/159/12231-focus-on-business.
My latest Circuits Assembly column is now up. It discusses the value of good diversity programs in helping top talent succeed. As a woman in the electronics industry, I’ve seen both good and bad approaches in this area. Here is the link: http://www.circuitsassembly.com/cms/component/content/article/159/12143-focus-on-business. Part II will publish in January.
If you find this topic interesting, here is an older article wrote for EMT Worldwide: http://www.emtworldwide.com/article/28463/The-Evolving-Role-of-Women-in-Engineering.aspx. That article was done at the request of a female engineer in the UK.
Feel free to share comments on either.
