We’re very proud to showcase Mulhern+Kulp’s ‘Women in Engineering’ group, comprised of 12 members across our Philadelphia, Atlanta, and San Diego offices. WIE launched over two years ago in support of the diversity initiative from our 2020 strategic plan.
The Mission of WIE is “Retention, Community, Volunteering” with the goal to positively impact the work experience, careers, recruiting, and retention of female engineers at M+K. At its core, the group provides a community of support and mentorship for members to discuss topics and challenges unique to their experiences as women engineers.
Working in collaboration with the Society of Women Engineers (SWE), our WIE members presented ‘Introduce a Girl to Engineering’ at a high school in Marietta, GA, attended a SWE networking dinner at Villanova University, and participated in Habitat for Humanity’s ‘Women’s Build Day’ in San Diego.
In keeping with the spirit of Giving Back at M+K, the WIE group created a team to raise funds, promote, and participate in the nationwide Susan G. Komen ‘Walk for the Cure’ event on behalf of Breast Cancer Awareness month. A ‘Wear Pink Day’ fundraiser was staged at each of our offices which contributed to the overall achievement of raising $4,000+ in support of research and advocacy to combat breast cancer!
We’re looking forward to WIE’s continued positive contributions to M+K’s staff and culture, as well as their charitable efforts and their promotion of engineering as a great career opportunity for young women.
