We Are What We Celebrate
Limor Fried on engineering technology that helps people.
LIMOR FRIED: I think that the most important thing in engineering is we are what we celebrate. If we celebrate the engineering that does good for people and the engineering that helps people, we're going to get more people who want to do good and want to help become engineers. And vise versa, engineer who want to do good to help others.
When people see that being celebrated, they realize, hey, I can be a part of this community and they feel better and the community feels better. So, it's about being inclusive and getting some of the old guard interested, and also getting some of these new and up and comers interested. And then, hopefully, getting them to work together. The people who have been engineers maybe for 30 40 years, they have so much knowledge. They can help they can teach. They can inspire a new generation.
