    Key Findings for 2018 Structural Engineering Engagement and Equity (SE3) Survey

    Presented by Stephanie Slocum, PE, LEED BD+C

    Founder and CEO, Engineers Rising LLC

    Topic Description

    In early 2018, the NCSEA SE3 Committee administered a nationwide survey of employee engagement and equity in the structural engineering profession. The survey investigated a variety of metrics including career advancement, compensation, and work-life balance, in order to better understand the experiences of practicing structural engineers around the country. This presentation will highlight the work of the Committee, with particular focus on the results of their 2018 survey. Attendees will leave the presentation with an understanding of some of the issues of engagement and equity facing our profession, as well as a set of recommended best practices to help improve both their firms and the profession as a whole.

    More information about the NCSEA SE3 Committee can be found at ncsea.com/committees/se3 and information about the SE3 Project can be found at se3project.org

    Learning Objectives:

    • 1.       An understanding of the issues of engagement and equity facing our industry
    • 2.       Statistics on satisfaction, the demographic distribution of leadership positions, and the gender pay gap
    • 3.       Data-driven best practices for improving upon both equity and overall staff engagement/retention

    National Rebuilding Day

    Saturday, April 27, 2019

    Rebuilding Together is a nationwide home repair and rehabilitation initiative dedicated to keeping low-income homeowners living in safety, warmth, and independence through volunteer services. On this day, Rebuilding Together teams from all over the country will arrive at their project homes to repair and improve as much as can be done in one day. This year our project will be located in Washington, DC. We hope to have a team of at least 20 to 30 people. We have just received our home assignment which includes repairing front steps, plumbing repairs, bathroom repairs, replacing doors, exterior and interior painting, landscaping, etc.

    Please note that no experience is necessary, just a willingness to make an impact in someone's life.
