One reason there are so few minorities in engineering is because they have so few role models. It is difficult for today's young minority engineer—who may feel all alone. There have been and are, however, minority engineers making unique and valuable contributions to the field and a few of them are profiled in this article. It is not a definitive list, but a representative group of different kinds of people contributing in a variety of ways. People profiled are Alfred Richardson, PE, Pacific Soils Engineering; Lilia Abraham Robinson, Ph.D., Howard University; Leroy Callender, PE, Consulting Engineer, New York; Jose Martinez, PE, University Mexico, New Mexixo, Richard Mason, PE, Gardner Engineering; and Ariel Morelli, PE, Council of Airports, New York.
