  • There is less gender bias in engineering than the number of women entering this field. Just as there is no gender bias in nursing against men. It’s just that not many want to enter nursing. It’s a matter of choice to start off. Even if a large number of women go in Engineering today, they wouldn’t reach senior levels of management for some time. That’s just the fact. In addition, I have seen some women engineers to take breaks in their careers to care for family. That affects them career wise. That’s a social issue within families.

    Bias can be shown to exist when women make up 65% of the work force for a long time but yet make up 45% of management. So, let’s talk about how we can get more women in Engineering before we talk about bias.
