Rescheduled and adjusted to focus on #BadassWomen Engineers:image  April 21th, 4 PM CST // 9 PM GMT


Due to unforeseen circumstances we have rescheduled this webinar from the original April 15th date.   Julie Campbell from Tektronix will remain as a featured guest and she will introduce the community to the Women in Technology (WIT) group at Tektronix. Julie is the principal mechanical engineer at Tektronix.  She brings a wealth of experience having worked extensively for two test and measurement companies, beginning in 1989.  She will be joined by Selu Gupta, a Senior Hardware Design Engineer at Tektronix, and Jessica Dunn, a Mechanical Engineer at Tektronix. Selu and Jessica founded Texktronix' Women in Technology (WIT) as volunteers, it has since been supported by senior leadership, and has grown to Tek sites all over the world. From an inclusion standpoint, Tektronix’ Women in Technology (WIT) group is one of the more powerful engines for diversity. WIT has managed to create an inclusive community within Tek that has made a new space for women and men to learn, share, and grow through events and programs.  Being in an environment where you are cheered on for your accomplishments and included is a profound motivator when you’re not like everyone else.


Engineering is an exciting career path,  allowing you to develop your creative thinking and problem solving ability, while making an impact on the world. Engineers often work in teams to tackle complex challenges that can't be solved alone. That's just scratching the surface.  As an engineer, your skills are highly coveted, so you have options.  What makes sense to you today, may not be clear tomorrow.  What's the right fit for you now?  When's the right time to consider a different role?  We'll attempt to find answers to those and many other questions during our panel discussion with engineers in the field.


Here is what one of the #BadassWomen Engineers printed out in support of our current #badass Women Makers and Engineers Contest :

Julie Campbell, Principal Mechanical Engineer at Tektronix Selu Gupta, Senior Hardware Design Engineer at Tektronix
I graduated from OSU with a BSME.  I loved working on radio control planes and cars as a kid with my dad.  I loved math and engineering seemed like a good fit. I have spent time at two different Test and Measurement companies.  I worked as a Mechanical Engineer with Tektronix for 10 years, as a Senior Mechanical Engineer for 13 years with another test & measurement company, and have been Principal Mechanical Engineer at Tektronix for the last 6 years.  I have worked in manufacturing and design.  I love miniature part design melded with RF engineering.  I have numerous patents and love working with teams creating unique products. Selu Gupta is a Senior Electrical Hardware Design Engineer as well as the Leader and Co-Founder of the Women in Technology group at Tektronix.  Selu started her career at Tektronix as a summer intern and has worked there for almost 20 years.  During this time, Selu has done circuit board designs for a variety of test and measurement products including Oscilloscope probes and Arbitrary Waveform Generators.  She is currently the Hardware Project Lead for the development and design of Entry Level Oscilloscopes.  Selu has a B.Sc and M.E. in Electrical Engineering from the University of Idaho.


Jessica Dunn, Mechanical Design Engineer at Tektronix
Working for ten (10) plus years experience as a mechanical design engineer at electronics packaging company, I have developed a passion for creative and collaborative design.
