Celebrating Women’s History Month by Honoring Women in Engineering

March isn’t just about welcoming spring – it’s also a time to reflect on the incredible contributions of women throughout history. During Women’s History Month, Dibble would like to highlight some of the women who have made their mark in the field of engineering.

From designing bridges to shaping urban landscapes, women have been breaking barriers and defying stereotypes in the world of engineering for decades. Here are just a few remarkable pioneers:

Emily Warren Roebling: Known for her instrumental role in the completion of the Brooklyn Bridge, Emily stepped up as the de facto chief engineer after her husband’s illness. Her dedication and expertise helped ensure the bridge’s success.

Nora Stanton Blatch Barney: A trailblazer in her own right, Nora became the first woman to earn a degree in civil engineering in the United States and the first junior member of the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) in 1905. She paved the way for countless women aspiring to pursue careers in engineering.

Elsie Eaves: As the first woman to become a full ASCE member and the first woman professional engineer in the state of New York, Elsie was a pioneer in engineering. Her achievements and advocacy paved the way for greater inclusion and diversity.

The legacy of these women reminds us that diversity and innovation go hand in hand, driving progress in our industry and beyond.

Join us in honoring the past, celebrating the present, and empowering the future of women in engineering!
