“61% of women engineers report that they have to prove themselves repeatedly to get the same level of respect and recognition as their colleagues” (Society of Women Engineers). Statistics show that there is a devastatingly low number of women in engineering and that the women who are in engineering are not respected as much as their male counterparts. Our team, 5327B, is working to change those statistics. On 5327B, we emphasize that everyone deserves a chance to learn and grow regardless of their gender. In our entry, we show how we are trying to change the engineering field by trying to make it a more inclusive environment. We also reached out to others to interest them in joining various STEM fields such as computer science, robotics, or computer integrated manufacturing.
