YPI Coffee Chat: Navigating the Industry as a Minority
Join us for a coffee chat with Wendy Lopez, Texas Executive at AECOM, to learn about the perspective and experience of a female leader in a traditionally male-dominated industry and as the founder of a woman-owned business enterprise in engineering. This coffee chat will take the format of an informal interview followed by an open question & answer session.
Recently awarded the 2019 Texas & Louisiana Legacy Award from ENR, Wendy Lopez is a trailblazing professional in the civil engineering industry with nearly four decades experience in management and technical consulting. Wendy has been a pioneer and champion for women in engineering, from being one of three women in her undergraduate studies to growing a one-person engineering consulting firm into a multi-disciplinary engineering and environmental services company with several hundred employees in less than 20 years.
