Dr. Nadya Fouad of Univ. of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, Discusses Why Women Leave Chemical Engineering

2/8   in the series Interviews: 2014 Annual Meeting

Strong efforts in a number of chemical engineering programs have contributed to more women majoring in chemical engineering, but Dr. Nadya Fouad of Univ. of Wisconsin-Milwaukee says that data explains that the issue is now about keeping women in the field. Her work looks at why women leave, and she also plans to look at successful cases of women chemical engineers to understand why women stay in the field. She sat down with AIChE Technical Programming Associate Kelsey Kettelhut to discuss her findings and also gave a talk on the subject at the AIChE 2014 Annual Meeting in Atlanta.
