Week 1

Women in Science

Semester:

This week during ChemSem, my two friends from the Engineering department, Nicoloe Brohner and Nina Lassonier, and I discussed some benefits of getting involved with the local Society of Women Engineers and National Society of Black Engineers chapters at Andrews University. Each of us discussed our experience and the opportunities that were offered to us due to our involvement in these organizations. In previous years, we had had the opportunity to travel to the annual conventions for both the Society of Women Engineers and National Society of Black Engineers.

Week 1: Women in Science

On the 12th of September, we had the opportunity to hear the experiences of women in the engineering.  Three engineers that go by the names of Jacquelyn Renee Geda, Elizabeth Bourgeois, and Allison Graban shared a little bit about how things are like for working for a company like Whirlpool Corporation.  Geda graduated from the University of Michigan while Bourgeois and Graban graduated from Purdue University.

The presentation for this week’s seminar was done by an exceptional group of women: Jacquelyn Renee Geda, Elizabeth Bourgeois, and Allison Graban.  These women are all engineers who work for the Whirlpool Corporation.  Also there three students of Andrews University who spoke about an on-campus women club: Camille Martin, Nichole Broner, and Lina Lissioner.

Now that we are almost at the end of this semester I can definitely say that this was my favorite seminar of the whole semester. It captured my attention the whole time from the beginning (maybe because it felt more like an interview than a presentation). I still remember it clearly, 3 women Jacquelyn Renee Geda, Elizabeth Bourgeois, and Allison Graban talked about their experiences as women in Mechanical Engineering. They gave us very useful tips on how to succeed in science some of which include join clubs like the Society of Women Engineers to network and find resources and future jobs.

This particular seminar may have been my favorite so far, simply because of how inspirational it was to me as a woman. These three young women stood as a testament to many young women, like myself, with goals to accomplish great things in the scientific world.

We have seen male chauvinism deeply embedded in our society. So, it is hardly surprising that women conductors have had little success in overcoming this last bastion of male supremacy. However, the generation has been shifted, there are more and more women becoming part of society, leading the world in various fields. Today, in a chemistry seminar, there were three women in science, Jacquelyn Renee Geda, Elizabeth Bourgeois, and Allison Graban. The three women graduated from Andrews University and now they are all engineers at the Whirlpool Corporation.

This week we talked with three female engineers from Whirlpool about women in the professional field of science. I was interested to learn that there are many different organizations that provide funding and support to female graduates interested in various fields and even a particular organization for African American women. These engineers, particularly the youngest, stressed the idea of networking and attending conventions as well.
