Did you know that there are currently 24,984 active licensed Professional Engineers in the State of Washington? I really have no idea if that is high or low, because I don't have any other states to compare it to, nor do I know how many residents Washington has. However, the real crazy part to me is... there are only 2,250 licensed women engineers. That is (hold on let find my calculator...) only 9%. NINE PERCENT. For all the leaps and bounds women have made in the workplace, less than 10% of the professional engineering force is made up of women... Kind of crazy, eh? I know there are a hundred different reasons for this, which I won't get into, but I just thought this was an interesting snippet when I read through my "Washington Board Journal" tonight. We are certainly a small population!
