“Engineering is a very creative profession... [Without] diversity, we limit the set of life experiences that are applied, and as a result, we pay an opportunity cost - a cost in products not built, in designs not considered, in constraints not understood, in processes not invented."

- William. A. Wulf,
former National Academy of Engineering President
