Description

Marie Raser, P.E., LSRP, is Senior Project Manager with Matrix New World Engineering, a women-owned, national environmental engineering firm headquartered in New Jersey.
 
In this episode Marie shares her experiences working in the male-dominated field of engineering, the challenges she faced as a woman working in the Middle East, and the perspectives—both personal and professional-- she has gained as a certified scuba diver.  
 
We also chat about: 
  • The importance of self-confidence and how to build your own 
  • Why you shouldn’t look to your supervisor to be your champion 
  • How she handles, “I thought they would be sending a man,” and similar comments 
  • Pivotal moments in her career and how she seized the opportunities 
  • Working during the Covid-19 pandemic and how she manages her team remotely 
  • The advantages she perceives in working for a women-owned company 
  • What she has learned from mentoring other women 
  • Where she looks for inspiration 
  • The positive changes she sees for women in engineering 
  • What she learned about teamwork from competitive sailboat racing 
  • The importance of confidence, resiliency and persistence in achieving career success 
  • And much more 
Marie’s work has taken her around the world; her hobbies take her under the sea. She seeks out and continues to thrive in challenging environments. To every woman seeking to succeed in business, Marie offers the following advice: “Fight for your place at the table. Take on additional responsibilities when available. Sometimes it’s important to step out of your comfort zone and volunteer for a challenging project---or voice an unpopular opinion.”  
 
Often times the best man for the job is a woman.
