Q Describe what you do in your current work situation? A I currently run a program to increase the number and success of women faculty in science and engineering. After working as an environmental engineer doing water and wastewater treatment plant design and hazardous waste cleanup work for seventeen years, I decided to work full time on increasing the participation of women and minorities in engineering, first at the National Academy of Engineering and now at Virginia Tech. I work with current deans, department heads, and faculty members to recruit more female faculty to the university and design and implement programs for current women faculty to support their career development. I also promote university policies that help both male and female faculty members to be successful in both their careers and their personal lives.
