Special issue of Leadership and Management in Engineering,
October 2001, Vol. 1, No. 4.
This special issue contains 12 papers focused on understanding and learning about diversity, with an emphasis on how the profession of civil engineering is adapting to the many differences among owners and stakeholders.As noted by Gloria Jean Jeff, Chair of ASCE's Committee on Diversity and Women in Civil Engineering, "Diversity is more than gender, race, ethnic background, or the replication of the traditional 'civil engineer' behavior patterns. Diversity is about opportunity and excellence. As leaders, ASCE must act upon the vision of diversity by providing opportunities to all." These papers address diversity issues involving women, Hispanics, mentoring, cross-cultural communication, management, and the "nondiverse."
