CEA - Balancing Motherhood and Civil Engineering with Bahaar Taylor, PE

Work-life balance is a topic that keeps coming up in our everyday lives. At the end of the day, we all have not only career goals but also personal goals and family responsibilities. Even though it can sound daunting, today’s guest will show you it’s possible. Bahaar Taylor is a structural project engineer at Erickson Structural Consulting Engineers in Washington, a 2021 ASCE New Face of Civil Engineering, wife, and mother of two. After getting her degree from Brigham Young University, she got elected as the president of the Oregon Chapter, and that’s exactly when she had her first child! In this episode, Bahaar explains how she manages to succeed at work without forgetting her family responsibilities, how role models can encourage young people to go for the career they want no matter what (especially young women), how she deals with the negative criticism that eventually comes up on job sites for being a woman, and much more!
