In celebration of Hispanic Heritage Month, SWE is highlighting Hispanic women engineers. For our first podcast during Hispanic Heritage Month, Marissa Doyen, Latinos Affinity Group Lead of the Society of Women Engineers interviews Eileen Vélez-Vega, vice president at Kimley-Horn and a director on SWE’s board of directors. In this episode, Eileen discusses her career path in STEM, the significance of being a Latina leader within SWE and her company and obstacles she has faced as a minority in engineering.
