Article: Leading the Way – A conversation with Karan Watson

In the article ‘Leading the Way – A Conversation with Karan Watson, Dr. Watson shares her journey of becoming an engineer, an educator and an advocate for women in STEM:

“Some people are advocates and thought leaders before even realizing it-an apt description of Karan Watson, Texas A & M Provost, ABET President-Elect, and electrical engineer. Dr. Watson has been effectively advocating for women in STEM for decades, and students, faculty and the STEM fields themselves have benefited. Humble and honest, Karan Watson was thoughtful as she shared with us her journey of becoming an engineer, educator, administrator, and women in STEM advocate. Karan’s realistic approach of combining hard work, ability, and a willingness to make the most of opportunities is enhanced by her great sense of humor and desire to help others succeed. WEPAN is very pleased that Dr. Watson will be a keynote speaker at the 2012 WEPAN National Conference.”
