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?

Updated College Park, Maryland

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 #engineers #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...
