Abstract

This paper summarizes data that examines the gender and racial diversity in the structural engineering profession. The first section describes the representation of women and racial/ethnic minorities among university faculty and students in the area of structural/civil engineering, among licensed professional engineers, members of structural engineering related professional organizations and companies employing structural engineers. The second section describes results of a survey filled out by 741 current and former structural engineers. Survey responses shed light on differences in career satisfaction, compensation and other experiences between engineers of different genders or races. The paper was conceived by the ASCE/SEI Young Professionals Committee; a complete report will be available from SEI in 2012.
