In this episode, we talk to Steve Foran, P.ENG, CSP, MBA, engineer, founder of Gratitude at Work, and author of the book “Surviving to Thriving – The 10 Laws of Grateful Leadership,” about leadership and how engineering leaders are leading with gratitude to enhance how they lead. He also talks about how engineers can build better habits, and how by doing that, can greatly benefit your engineering career.
Here Are Some of the Key Points Discussed About Leading With Gratitude:
In this episode, we talk to Hannah Iezzoni, P.E., a Geostructural design engineer at KELLER, about what geotechnical construction is and the relationship between geotechnical and foundation engineering. She also talks about her involvement in mentoring young female engineers and promoting inclusivity within our industry.

In this episode, I talk to Kevin Brown Jr., P.E., a construction manager at Urban Engineers, about how outreach and mentorship can lead to a more diverse industry. He also discusses some of the challenges faced when connecting with youth in communities, and provides some great advice for engineers who would be interested in serving as a mentor.
Here Are Some of the Questions I Ask Kevin About Outreach and Mentorship:
- What can civil engineers do to prepare themselves for work on construction sites?
- Why is it important for engineers to reach out to underrepresented communities?
- What are some of the challenges you have faced when connecting with the youth in communities?
- Why is the representation of diverse groups important?
- What advice would you want to give to someone who would be interested in serving as a mentor?
- How can engineers incorporate corporate DEI plans in the workplace?
Here Are Some Key Points Discussed in This Episode About Outreach and Mentorship:

In this episode, we talk to Joseph (Joe) Dardis, P.E., a Senior Structural Steel Specialist with the American Institute of Steel Construction (AISC) in Chicago, about what structural engineers should know about the evolving construction economy.
Here Are Some of the Questions We Ask Joe About the Evolving Construction Economy:
- Can you provide more insights about what the building construction economy is looking like right now, the types of projects being built, and how it has evolved?
- Do you think any project types will bounce back to the level of growth they were in 2019?
- How did the sizes of projects evolve over the past few years?
- What forces in the overall economy drive the evolution of what we build and how can a structural engineer prepare and adapt to these changes?
- What do you predict the building market will look like in the future?
- How are building materials used to address the evolving building market?
- What can structural engineers do to help improve the construction industry?
- How do you measure US economic health and how does this relate to the construction economy?
- Are there any resources available that can help engineers understand more about the evolving building market?
Here Are Some of the Key Points Discussed About the Evolving Construction Economy:
In this episode, we talk to Mary Ellen Bruce Large, P.E., D.GE, Regional Business Development and Client Care Program Manager at Nicholson Construction (formally the Director of Technical Activities for the Deep Foundations Institute) about the value of professional societies.
