1. Wenger's Short Essay

In Wenger's post, she tells of about what happens as a female in the industry, writing, "I've had men throw dollar bills at me in a professional office (by an employee who works at that company, during work hours)," and, "I've had an engineer on salary at a bootcamp message me to explicitly 'be friends with benefits' while I was in the interview process at the school he worked for." At OneLogin where she works as a full-stack engineer, was featured in an ad. Some commented on her picture as "too sexy" and some of them said she is just trying to attract women.

"I'm just a human and I prefer to keep my life simple/reserved, but it blows my mind that my fully-clothed smiling face with unbrushed hair and minimal makeup on a white wall is seemingly more controversial in some communities than this simply because of my gender," Wenger writes in the essay. Wenger says that she is just one engineer and doesn't represent all the women of her company. She does think like her male co-workers. she looks right for the job or not. Instead, she thinks more emphasis should be put on how well she does her job and how much she cares for her team. "Do you feel passionately about helping spread awareness about tech gender diversity? Do you not fit the "cookie-cutter mold" of what people believe engineers "should look like?" If you answered yes to any of these questions I invite you to help spread the word and help us redefine "what an engineer should look like". #iLookLikeAnEngineer" Other cis gendered female and LGBTQ engineers have been tweeting their impressive credentials with her hashtag - shutting down stereotypes and showing how widespread and diverse the population of engineers really can be.
