The Quintessential Engineer: Creating a Lasting Role Model

The Quintessential Engineer: Creating a Lasting Role Model

Women have a long history of being underrepresented in the engineering field. There are many possible reasons, but one is a lack of role models. Illinois Ph.D student Sakshi Srivastava proposed to bring a statue to the University of Illinois campus to serve as a permanent figure for women of any generation to look up to. The statue, The Quintessential Engineer, now stands on Illinois' Engineering Quad as a sign of hope and inspiration for all.
