SE3 Latest News
Is recruitment & retention a challenge for your firm? SEA-MW's SE3 (Structural Engineering Engagement and Equity) Committee has created a document to highlight national SE3 survey data on work flexibility and recruitment/retention, and present key findings in the context of the Metropolitan Washington region, with local policy examples. We hope this document facilitates dialogue and helps to improve recruitment and retention locally as well as elevate the structural engineering profession. You can access the document here:

We are also seeking new committee members! The SEA-MW SE3 Committee is open to all, and we would love to have representation from all SEA-MW firms. Feel free to contact JGreenawalt@ThorntonTomasetti.com to join our next virtual meeting!
Thanks to everyone who attended our first SEA-MW SE3 Book Club on “The Color of Law: A Forgotten History of How Our Government Segregated America” by Richard Rothstein. The book club was held virtually over three sessions in February, March, and April. We had interesting discussions learning about the history of segregation laws in our country, as well as the aspects of those laws that still have a significant impact on our current residential housing market. Please see the links below for a list of discussion questions from each session and a list of additional resources (podcasts, movies, documentaries, etc) near the end of each document.
Session #1: Chapters 1-4
Session #2: Chapters 5-8
Session #3: Chapters 9-12
Thanks to everyone who attended our kickoff event on September 30! Our first presentation was titled Workplace Flexibility and the Structural Engineer: How We Fit into "The Great Resignation 2021" moderated by Stephanie Slocum. Please see the link below for a copy of the presentation.
