Six tips from Seattle Startup Week for fostering women in engineering

In The Press - Oct. 4, 2017

Martine Stillman, Mechanical Engineering Program Lead at Synapse, was quoted in an Geekwire article about a panel she spoke at during Techstars Startup Week Seattle. During the panel, “Women in Hardware,” Martine and 4 other women engineers shared tips for getting ahead in a traditionally male-dominated field.

In a dysfunctional, Dilbert-style workplace, rivals are keen to steal each other’s ideas. When men do that to women, it’s called “manterrupting” or “bro-propriation.” Stillman favors a different strategy: making sure that a good idea is credited to its creator throughout the discussion. If the idea is branded from the start as “Christina’s idea,” for example, “she and I now have a stronger relationship because of that.”
