I went to a Society of Women Engineers meeting last night. I haven’t gone to one of their meetings since a former national SWE president highly discouraged me from producing Budget Justified (http://BudgetJustified.com). She said it would be bad for the profession. Well, I think it would be bad for SWE to tell its members to shut up and hide in the corner when somebody is mean to them. I have a sneaky suspicion that if someone asked her if she told me not to create Budget Justified, she’s deny ever saying so.
Since this former national SWE president wasn’t there, I told several members about Budget Justified. They seemed fairly supportive of the effort. Perhaps I will give a talk about it at one of their upcoming meetings.
