#ILookLikeAnEngineer fights stereotypes in the workplace

A female engineer is using social media to fight gender and racial stereotypes in the workplace after being told she "does not look like an engineer."

Isis Wenger appeared in a recruitment ad for her San Francisco technology company, and received comments that she did not appear to be an actual employee, prompting her to post about her job using the hashtag #ILookLikeAnEngineer. This has inspired fellow engineers of female gender and color to follow suit, in a social media movement to disprove misconceptions about the occupation. A handful of these posts can be seen below.
