women engineers

Oct 5, 2019 43 Comments

something that i been noticing while working with young male software engineers, not all , may be vast majority of them. They would not ask for help from a woman, instead they would ask a male co worker even if that person has no experience in that area.
Not sure if you guys are experiencing this? or may be im just over thinking🤔

      It’s not an excuse it’s a bullying tactic. Women want an equitable workplace. They do that by calling out men of power who have abused their position such as in Hollywood because of sexual harassment. But apparently that means any guy is in trouble. I can tell you now that any jackass complaining about metoo is a major chauvinistic creep and are now scared because they know they can’t get away with shit anymore. Most decent men don’t care and understand metoo.

      So anybody who doesn’t agree with you or the metoo movement is a “major chauvinistic creep”. Nice. This is exactly why normal, decent men will stay away.

    I’ve been around the block a few times and one thing I’ve learnt is leave your ego outside the building when you step into work. If you are stuck, look for the smartest person around who can and is willing to help and seek their help. Does not matter if it is a man or a woman. At the end of the day, being able to make meaningful progress on what you are doing is what counts.

      Women are rarely smartest people in the room. Happened maybe once in my long career.

  • It's the same with mechanical engineers. New team members never ask my wife for help and she's the lead production line engineer. When when she politely tells the new employee they are messing up and creating more work for other people by not asking her for help, they still won't come see her. The new hire is about to be canned.

    I have experienced the same with female junior engineers. I am very approachable and have mentored several female engineers at all levels during my career. I don’t know what it’s about but I make it a point to not take it personally. I think you should do the same and not make it about your gender or theirs.

    Why not ask women? As long as she looks good, smells good, isn’t that better than asking a men
