I would like to hear from those who have already attended the Grace Hopper Celebration (GHC). Your opinions and tips on how to prepare for this significant event would be highly valuable to me. While I am already watching various reviews on YouTube, I believe this platform can provide additional insights and guidance. I appreciate any guidance you can provide.?

I welcome and appreciate any assistance provided here.

How hard is it to be a woman in engineering?

I will become a computer engineer when I leave college. I know I will have to struggle with adversity. How difficult will it be for me to challenge the male dominated field of engineering and succeed? #technology #women-in-engineering

How can I change the world by doing what I love?

I am a Girl Scout and I dream of leaving the Earth better than I found it. I love science and creating the designs from my head. I find mathematics to be a little challenging, but I keep working and am in Pre-Calculus and have taken all honor maths my school offers. I think Engineering is a great field; however, men dominate this workforce. How can I best stand out and make the world a better place. #women-in-engineering

What is the 1 book you would suggest everyone reads in their lifetime?

I'm making it a personal goal to read for 30 minutes daily again, and am looking for some quality material. Anything related to science, technology, or woman's history are very interesting to me. #college #engineering #science #technology #tech #women-in-tech #reading #women-in-engineering #books

As a woman in a STEM field or a woman going into a STEM field, have you ever felt that you were in any discriminated against due to your gender?

As an 18 year old female chem major (soon to be chemical engineering), I'm curious about others experiences in typically male dominated classes/majors/jobs. #engineering #science #chemistry #stem #chemical-engineering #women-in-stem #women-in-tech #women-in-engineering

Are there engineering majors out there directly related to animals?

Animals have always been a huge passion of mine. I would love to know if there are any engineering majors that I can study that can lead me to an engineering job that involves working with animals. #engineering #civil-engineering #biomedical-engineering #animals #women-in-stem #environmental-engineering #women-in-engineering #animal-welfare

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? What is it REALLY like as a woman in the civil engineering field? #civil-engineering #women-in-stem #professionals #women-in-engineering #structural-engineering

As there are still not many women in the engineering field, what would I be able to do in college and my future career to earn more respect from men in that field?

I have heard from some female engineers that I have talked to about how they weren't given as much respect as they should from men in college and their workplace. This worries me because I want to major in Biomedical Engineering and I want to be fully respected in the workplace and in college and I am not sure if I could handle the disrespect that I have heard happens in college and the workplace for women in engineering. #engineering #biomedical-engineering #women-in-stem #women-in-engineering

Due to the under-representation of women in engineering fields (and STEM fields in general), are there any double standards or certain "standards" that are expected and directed towards women?

Despite many women being encouraged to go into STEM fields, it is still a heavily male-dominated field which is a little intimidating. Since there isn't complete equal pay between the genders as well as double standards for both, I'm a little worried that my work as an engineer will be judged more or less harshly because I'm a female. I want to be prepared to face all of the expectations that are placed because of the gender gap. #engineering #women-in-stem #women-in-tech #women-in-engineering

For female professionals: Have you even encountered any obstacles obtaining leadership positions because of your gender, and if so, how did you handle those challenges?

I've always had slight concerns about being a woman pursuing a historically male-dominated field (in my case, psychology research/professorship), and I was curious what have been the experiences of women in leadership positions. Was it difficult getting where you are because of your gender? Are there certain fields where sexism is still a common practice? If you have had any of these experiences, what advice do you have for young women who may be navigating this environment? #leadership #women-in-stem #women #women-in-tech #women-in-engineering #sexism #women-in-leadership #women-in-higher-ed

How challenging is a career in electrical engineering?

I want to be an electrical engineer but I know little about what I will actually be doing in class and in the field. Do the jobs get harder? How big of a degree would be good for a long term career? As a female should I even consider a career here? #engineering #higher-education #electrical-engineering #women-in-stem #women-in-tech #women-in-engineering
