ASCE Plot Points Season 2 Episode 4: ASCE published “Becoming Leaders: A Practical Handbook for Women in Engineering, Science, and Technology” in 2008, co-edited by Carolyn Emerson and the late Mary Williams. The book proved so essential that, 11 years later, Emerson helped put together an updated and expanded second edition. Emerson talks about challenges she saw for women in civil engineering more than a decade ago and what progress she has seen since (2:00). In today’s Extracurricular segment, Marsha Anderson Bomar tells us about her chocoloate obsession and her career as a restauranteur (14:30). And in Member Memos, we ask if you have seen any improvements during the last decade for women in civil engineering (19:30).
