As a chemical engineer, do you realize any notable differences in the work ethics of female chemical engineers and male engineers? If so, what are some notable differences? If not, what are the similarities?

I am a female high school graduate who is looking to pursue a lifelong career in Chemical engineering. What drove me to ask this question is the simple fact that quite a few people have asked me why do I want to be a chemical engineer considering that I am a female, and "females just don't fit in careers like that?" I feel like this question can help people realize that females can be just as productive and are just as deserving of recognition as males are. #career #science #work #engineering #women #chemical #equality #ethic

Hi Roosevon L.


So, just joined and great question. I am not a Chemical engineer, but would like to respond...


Females and males are equally skilled and gender is irreverent. Anyone challenging you on career fit because of your gender are very misguided and, without further context, sexist...

Thank you comment icon Thank you for your generous reply! & I agree with you. :) Gender is only a title. Roosevon

Hi Roosevon

I work in a very diverse Engineering R&D organization with engineers across many disciplines and ethnic, gender, language, nationality, age backgrounds.
And I have never noticed a work ethic difference because of background, area of expertise or gender.
It is unfortunate that some people have biased views.
I encourage you to continue to pursue your goals and aspirations regardless of what others think or say.
