Being a woman in STEM, what is expected of your work life to be like as a civil engineer?
I have constantly been told that there are more men in the STEM field than women, and as a woman, it would be more difficult to communicate with my coworkers compared to being able to communicate with them if I was a man. I was told that I would be surrounded by other men who would not take me seriously, simply because I am a woman. Are these stereotypical statements true?

not true, over my 30 years have worked as a team with many female engineers, many who after achieving experience left and opened their own consulting firms and all were very successful, and real engineers
