Jennifer Ogle is an Assistant Professor in the Glenn Department of Civil Engineering at Clemson University in Clemson, SC. Dr. Ogle is committed to increasing the diversity in STEM activities and participates in an array of leadership and outreach activities with WTS International, Society of Women Engineers, and the Girl Scouts. Dr. Ogle’s work with WTS will culminate this coming spring with the “DC Summit,” the first meeting of young girls who’ve been partnered with WTS members for mentorship and hands-on programs to solidify their interest in STEM studies and future careers in the transportation industry. This effort is a joint initiative with the U.S. DOT that launched with the 2010 signing of a memorandum of understanding by US Secretary of Transportation Ray LaHood.
