Presentation Summary:

In the Spring of 2020, the SE3 Committee conducted its third nationwide survey of Structural Engineers across the profession.  The survey is an ongoing effort to identify trends, and to initiate industry-wide conversations.  With an effort to focus on both racial and gender equity, the committee streamlined its core questions regarding career satisfaction, compensation, and work-life balance.  New to the survey were questions regarding challenges in retention and recruitment of engineers, work flexibility before and after COVID-19, and perception of the profession compared to other STEM careers among other topics.

This presentation will review the latest survey findings and highlight the work being done by the SE3 committee as informed by the results of the 2020 survey.  Attendees will gain an understanding of the current challenges facing the profession as well as actionable information to help improve both their firms and the profession as a whole.
