This series of the Doing a World of Good Podcast, generously underwritten by Scott and Karen Love,  focuses on how and why process engineers are at the core of a wide range of industries within the chemical engineering profession. 

In this episode, host Bob Knorpp speaks with newly retired process engineers, Beth Ballard and Monica Wilson. Beth spent 40 years in the petrochemical and chemical industries at a number of firms, recently retiring from her position at Ecolab, where she was their Global Supply Chain Vice President of Engineering. Monica spent over 30 years in process engineering, recently retiring from AkzoNobel where she concluded her career.

They discuss why they decided to begin their careers as process engineers, navigating their respective industries as women and minorities, key advice they received that enabled them to succeed, and what's next for them following their long-lived process engineering careers.
