Barb J. Samardzich, Vice President of Powertrain Engineering of Ford Motor Company, talked with Warren Brown from the Washington Post and myself about women and engineers.

When Samardzich graduated from engineering college five percent of her class were women. Felicia Fields, Ford’s Group Vice President, Human Resources and Corporate said that  18 percent of Ford’s engineers are women.

Are there any programs to bring more women into the engineering field?

Since this video Barb Samardzich has been appointed  Ford Motor Companys vice president, Global Product Programs.
