Women Engineers for GM
Many people view the automotive industry as a male-dominated field. This may have been true in the past, but women are quickly making their mark on the industry. Women are making history by creating technology advances in propulsion, infotainment and vehicle-to-vehicle communication at General Motors. Change happens with one person at a time and women engineers for GM are making that change a reality.
General Motors CEO Mary Barra has said that GM will be going through more dramatic changes in the next decade than it has in the past 50 years. This prediction might come true with the help of women engineers. Three women in the company are already changing the way we drive with a variety of technological advancements. One of these women is Trista Schieffer, the lead development engineer for battery electric vehicles. She is responsible for making sure everything works together to meet customer expectations of an electric vehicle. She works with people to deliver solutions for handling, noise, vibration, comfort, storage, heating, cooling, safety, energy efficiency and more.
Another woman that works for GM is Rebecca Roth, an infotainment product owner. She helps develop software to safely integrate driver’s lives into the ride. She also helps develop software for the Smart Grid, an intelligent system that allows two-way communication between the electric company and the homeowner or their electric vehicles. Another talented GM engineer, is Jessica Moreno a program manager and V2V security credential management. Moreno and her team are working to develop vehicle-to-vehicle technology. This type of technology will soon be available for cars to essentially talk to each other and help avoid crashes and traffic jams.
These are just examples of a few of the women working for General Motors. They are making a developments and updates to technology we use or will use every day in our vehicles.
