Foreword by Mae Carol Jemison, M.D., President, BioSentient Corporation

Through real-life stories, the full-color Changing Our World: True Stories of Women Engineers celebrates the contributions of women engineers to every aspect of modern life. Explore the lives and careers of hundreds of women engineers of all ages and backgrounds—extraordinary women who serve as role models to tell the untold story of engineering. These inspirational stories will give you a fresh perspective on engineering. As a fundamental resource for educational outreach programs, Changing Our World offers young women inspiration and encouragement to pursue careers in engineering. When placed in school libraries and counseling centers, the book provides girls and their parents with an exciting exploration into what is possible.

Publication of Changing Our World represents a significant milestone for the Extraordinary Women Engineers Project—a collaborative effort of many different individuals and organizations to address the long-standing underrepresentation of women in the engineering profession. The book won the Design and Effectiveness Award in the Illustrated Text category from the Washington Book Publishers, on May 31, 2006.
