The Autodesk Community Team held a panel interview with three of our Community Members that are women within the AEC Industry. We asked them to shed some light on being a woman in STEAM and what advice they had for the younger generations.
The Autodesk Community Diversity & Inclusion Program ran an event on March 26th, that put the spotlight on Women in STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics). We had three women who are active in our Architecture Engineering and Construction communities sit down with us and talk about their stories.
Our three guests were Kati Mercier, Purvi Ghandi Irwin, and Stacey Morykin. All three are a part of the Autodesk Expert Elite program, all have been Autodesk University speakers, and are strong advocates for diversity in their industry. Alongside them were our Community Managers, Lena Talkhina and Chris Benner. We talked with them about the challenges of being women in what has been traditionally a male dominated career field, as well as balancing this career with family, and the added challenges of doing all of this during a global pandemic.
