GEM-SET Daily Digest for September 4, 2001

Q: DO YOU HAVE A FAVORITE QUOTATION THAT COMES TO MIND WHEN YOU NEED INSPIRATION OR GUIDANCE? WHAT IS IT AND WHO SAID IT ORIGINALLY?

A: FROM MENTOR CAROL TOMAN at Lucent
You know you are old when you have lost all your marvels.
- Merry Brown

A: FROM MENTOR KRISTIN TAGHON at Lucent
I have a few favorite quotations. One is humorous, and I think about it
when I need a laugh!! The one that "inspires" me is from an unknown source.
"Happiness is not a state to arrive at. It is a method of traveling." I think
of this quote when I am having a bad day and realize that I don't have to
let it get me down.

Q: WHAT ARE YOUR FAVORITIE HOBBIES? DO THEY HELP OR HINDER YOUR CAREER GOALS?

A: FROM MENTOR CASSIE FENOSEFF at GM North America
I have several hobbies, involving almost anything outdoors such as
snowmobiling, skiing, hiking, biking, rollerblading, and camping, and I also have many
indoor hobbies such as playing the piano, reading, and scrapbooking.
Obviously my hobbies do not involve engineering, so technically they don't necessarily enhance my
career goals. However, I feel that they help me to be a more balanced,
relaxed person, which influences my work life in a positive way.

A: FROM MENTOR CAROL TOMAN at Lucent
My two hobbies are geneology (researching one's ancestors)
and photography. If I may get a little philosophical, I think they
hold the same yin and yang that engineering does. On the one
hand engineering requires a lot of detailed research and analysis
but on the other hand real results come from creative synthesis.

(Note: Thanks go to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Office on Women's Health and the UIC National Center of Excellence in Women's Health for providing the free calendars.)

Q: DO YOU HAVE A FAVORITE QUOTATION THAT COMES TO MIND WHEN YOU NEED INSPIRATION OR GUIDANCE? WHAT IS IT AND WHO SAID IT ORIGINALLY?

A: FROM MENTOR JATARA BROWN at Lucent
"Keep your face to the sunshine and you cannot see the shadows."
-- Helen Keller
"The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams."
-- Eleanor Roosevelt
"We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a
habit."
-- Aristotle
"Go confidently in the direction of your dreams! Live the life you've
imagined."
--Henry David Thoreau

A: FROM MENTOR MICHELLE MOENSSENS at GM Corporation
My quote:
Actually I have 2:
"Life moves pretty fast. If you don't stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it."
"Remember today's mighty oak was once a nut that held it's ground" (This one is great for a new engineer!!)

Q: WHAT ARE YOUR FAVORITE HOBBIES? DO THEY HELP OR HINDER YOUR CAREER GOALS?

A: FROM MENTOR MICHELLE MOENSSENS at GM Corporation
My hobbies???
Stamping. You know, little rubber stamps that you can stamp onto cards, fabric, walls, projects, etc. I like it so much that I have even become a demonstrator for stamps for a home based company (instead of Tupperware parties, we have Stamping parties!!) Anyway, I love it because it is a creative outlet and it gives me an opportunity to hang out with other women. It is just an excellent creative outlet at the end of the day and a good way to unwind.

NEW QUESTION from moderator Laura Stempel:

FOR STUDENTS: Now that school is starting, what are you most looking forward to?
=========================================================================
GEM-SET Daily Digest for September 6, 2001

I like to collect rocks, hang out with my friends and play with animals.
=========================================================================
GEM-SET Daily Digest for September 7, 2001

Q: NOW THAT SCHOOL IS STARTING, WHAT ARE YOU MOST LOOKING FORWARD TO?

A: FROM MODERATOR, BEAULAH VAZ at IIT I am looking forward to all the new students stopping by at the Career Development Center (Where I work). It is always very interesting to meet new people.

Q: WHAT ARE YOUR HOBBIES?

A: FROM MENTOR Mary Jo Mullen at Patrick Engineering I like to crochet and scrap book. I also love playing volleyball. And I wanted to say to Sarah D., go clarinet players! I played from 5th grade until I graduated from college and I loved being in band. I met some of my best friends in band...and I married another clarinet player.

NEW QUESTIONS: How many of you are musicians? What is your favorite type of music and favorite groups? Do you think that music talent and math talent are correlated? =========================================================================
GEM-SET Daily Digest for September 10, 2001

Q: HOW MANY O F YOU ARE MUSICIANS? WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE TYPE OF MUSIC AND FAVORITE GROUPS? DO YOU THINK THAT MUSIC TALENT AND MATH TALENT ARE CORRELATED?

A: FROM MENTOR JUDY MCGOOGAN at Lucent I love music, and I sing in my church choir. I definitely think there's a relationship between music and mathematical ability. Many of the folks I know who are strong in math are also musicians.

A: FROM STUDENT ELIZABETH C. at Girl Scouts of DuPage I am, I play clarinet. pop/R&B I like *nsync ( I have a crush on one of the members from *nsync, I won't tell who?? that's a secret!!!) I don't know [if music talent and math talent are correlated] !

A: FROM MENTOR MOLLY WILLIAMS at Western Michigan University There surely is a correlation between mathematics and music. Many of my friends who are into music and dance as hobbies are also in technical professions. I participate in several music activities myself: English handbells (about a dozen people each with responsibility for 2 to 5 bells, all of different pitches, play tunes as a group), Shape Note Singing (a Southern US hymn singing tradition), and English and early American contra and square dancing. All of these activities require concentration, organization, and a sense of working with the rest of the group to produce a coherent result; those are some of the same skills you need in technical professions. I also have a hammered dulcimer, which I play for my own recreation. For listening to music, I like both classical and folk including bluegrass and Cajun.

A: FROM MENTOR JANET DIANDA at Lucent I sing, play violin, string bass, electric bass, and piano. I'm not a great musician, but I enjoy it. I play and sing duets at open mikes with a friend of mine who plays guitar. I also play with the Lucent Folk Music Club group. We perform at charity events, Special Olympics, camps for special children, retirement homes, etc. It's nice to make people happy with live music! I was too shy to perform until I was over thirty. Too bad! If I could do it over, I would have started performing in high school. It's okay to make mistakes, to be less than perfect, as long as you're enjoying the music, others will enjoy it too. I have many "favorite" types of music. Music is my greatest passion! 1. symphonic music, quartets, sonatas, especially Mozart, Beethoven, Debussy 2. opera, especially Mozart, Verdi, Puccini, Bellini, and Bizet 3. alternative rock/pop, especially Sarah McLaughlin, Tori Amos, Kurt Cobain, Matchbox Twenty, Nina Gordan, the Cure, Depeche Mode, U2, etc. From the "new wave" era, I loved the Pretenders, Elvis Costello, Blondie, the Cars, the Ramones, the Go-Go's, the Police. 4. classic rock, such as Jimmy Hendricks, Janice Joplin, the Rolling Stones, Beetles, Heart, Steppenwolf, etc. 5. folk rock, including Joan Baez, Donovan, Joni Mitchell, Indigo Girls, Bob Dylan, Mommas and the Poppas, Simon & Garfunkel, Cat Stevens, etc. 6. world music & reggae, especially King Sunny Ade (Nigeria), Bob Marley and the Wailers (Jamaica) 7. Scandanavian folk music (I used to play in a Scandanavian band). I don't know if math and music are correlated. I'm excellent in math and good in music. One of my best friends is excellent in math, but can't carry a tune, and has no sense in rhythm.

A: FROM MENTOR CASSIE FENOSEFF at GM North America I played the piano for 10 years as a child (and can still play, but I've stopped taking lessons), and I played the clarinet until high school. I think that both were good experiences and make for a more well rounded person, although I don't think parents should force children to play instruments like some do. Currently my favorite type of music is country and basically top-40, mainstream music. I actually just went and saw Madonna in concert and she was very good- she puts on a very good show. I do not think that music talent and math talent are necessarily related. However, not to stereotype, but I think that the type of student that is interested in playing an instrument also usually excels academically.

Q: Any other opinions on the topic? =========================================================================
GEM-SET Daily Digest for September 12, 2001

Note: Due to the tragic events of September 11, 2001 no GEM-SET posting was made yesterday. We recognize the impact that yesterday's acts of terrorism in New York and Washington D.C. had on our GEM-SET participants. We join a grieving nation as we do our best to return to our daily duties, including the GEM-SET project.

NEW QUESTION: As our wounds begin to heal from the tragic events that occurred on September 11, 2001, I ask the GEM-SET participants to consider how science, engineering, and technology can be used for both positive and negative outcomes. What can we do as students and professionals to improve the positive outcomes in the wake of this disaster?
=========================================================================
GEM-SET Daily Digest for September 13, 2001

Q: AS OUR WOUNDS BEGIN TO HEAL FROM THE TRAGIC EVENTS THAT OCCURRED ON SEPTEMBER 11, 2001, I ASK THE GEM-SET PARTICIPANTS TO CONSIDER HOW SCIENCE, ENGINEERING, AND TECHNOLOGY CAN BE USED FOR BOTH POSITIVE AND NEGATIVE OUTCOMES. WHAT CAN WE DO AS STUDENTS AND PROFESSIONALS TO IMPROVE THE POSITIVE OUTCOMES IN THE WAKE OF THIS DISASTER?

A: FROM STUDENT ELIZABETH C. at Girl Scouts of DuPage talk about it A: FROM MENTOR BARBARA SMOLEN at Northrop Grumman Corporation Positive outcomes. I think technology has played a major role in the investigation of events leading up to the terrorism. I am writing this September 13th early in the morning, and already: 1) electronic information stored in Airline databases, State Car Registration Records, Rental Car Company Records, and Passport Information at entry points in the United States has been instrumental in the investigation 2) FBI website (which the last I heard, had 700 leads that people typed in), had some information which was helpful to the investigation 3) much of the information on the activities of the terrorists on the planes came from cell phone calls made from the poor people trapped with them on the planes. 5) optical technology allowed police to search the Westin Hotel by slipping a camera under the hotel doors 4) cell phone calls of survivors of the World Trade Center disaster alerted rescue workers, to say where they were trapped; or if they were out safely, allowed the survivors to inform their relatives that they were safe. As we all know, the normal phone lines were (understandably) a mess, even as far away as Chicago, where I live. I'm sure that had this evil deed happened prior to all these electronic aids, the investigation would be much further behind where it is now, and many more people would be either trapped, or unable to contact their relatives that were on vacation, or otherwise hard to reach. I think technology is tool, like any other tool, and it can be used for good or evil. Negative. If we travel by air in the future, we may be subject to longer delays as further electronic searches of our baggage, or other inconveniences. I work for a Defense Contractor. We did not close, and starting Tuesday afternoon, security here was much tighter, with guards checking out all outgoing and incoming bags (usually they just check outgoing). No visitors were allowed unless they had been pre-arranged. Badges (combination photo and credit-card-like-thing we wear with a clip attached to our clothing) only allowed worn on left side of collar (we usually have more leeway on the location). All these things have taken a little more time to get through the entry doors, but as far as I'm concerned, they're all for my safety, and I'm all for them. Our society has a whole may have to do the same thing, put up with more inconvenience, that ultimately, will be for our own safety.

A: FROM MENTOR CAROL TOMAN at Lucent Technology itself is neither good nor evil -- it is amoral -- outside the realm of morality. It is up to each of us to try each day to make the world a better place. While we may not have much influence on the big picture, we don't affect national policy or hunt down the "bad guys", we all have a big influence on our immediate world. For adults, peace can begin behind the wheel of their cars, when they are polite to other drivers. For you in school, peace can begin on the bus and in the lunch lines when you treat other students with respect. At this time we must be very careful to guard against the mistake made by the terrorists: we must not punish innocent people for the perceived crimes by other members of a group. Each of us chooses every day and life goes on.

A: FROM MENTOR MARY JO MULLEN at Patrick Engineering Our entire company received a memo from our president that morning which gave guidelines for our personal and professional actions during this time. All employees were allowed to leave if they felt it necessary, or spend as much time as they wanted in the areas where TVs were set up to watch live coverage. He encouraged us all to spend time with loved ones, especially those who may be affected by this tragedy. The second part of the memo dealt with the potential need our clients will have for engineering assistance. During that day, there was much speculation that amid the chaos, some horrible person may attempt sabotage of water, air or infrastructure. We were charged to contact all of our clients who may be in these industries and offer our immediate assistance. No contracts, no budgets, just get out there and help however we could. I think we all as engineers and scientists have an obligation to humanity to do whatever is possible to help the country and our fellow Americans through this in whatever way we are qualified. If I were a medical professional, I would have been in my car on the way to New York that morning. This is horribly distracting to me at work. I find myself looking for updates constantly, hoping they have found more people alive in the rubble, or hoping they have found the lunatics who are responsible. I know though that I have to keep working and not disrupt my normal way of life. Otherwise they win. And beyond being engineers and scientists, I think as people we all need to come together, fly the flag proudly, and pray in whatever way is appropriate for you for the victims and their families. All of my friends in New York have been accounted for. But many of their friends are still missing. I pray for those missing, and those who look for them.

A: FROM MENTOR KRISTIN TAGHON at Lucent I have been thinking about this almost non-stop since Tuesday morning, as I am sure everyone has. Shock was followed by fear and helplessness. I still feel very helpless and frustrated. As a Caucasian, it is sometimes hard to understand how it feels to be blatantly discriminated against (although, as a woman, I sometimes feel that discrimination, though subtle). It is hard to understand why a group of people would hate Americans so much that they would risk their lives. Because of this, some people are apt to act quickly and retaliate quickly, using all the technology at their disposal. This is the negative use of technology. Positively, we can replace communication equipment fairly quickly, to help in communication with possible victims, between families, and between rescue workers, etc. Technology can be used to help bring order back to our lives, to help heal physical and emotional wounds. It still amazes me that, as I watch the aftermath, they are using little technology to aid in finding victims of the attack. As professionals and as students, improving the positive outcomes is not necessarily by using technology, but by controlling our emotions and thoughts. What has been done against the American people cannot be repeated against other cultures and ethnic groups, in retaliation. I know that this event has made me realize that I still have some improvement along these lines. I hope that others realize that actions against whole groups of people are irrational and emotional, at best. =========================================================================
GEM-SET Daily Digest for September 14, 2001

Today is the National Day of Prayer and Remembrance for the victims of Tuesday's terrorist attack. No GEM-SET postings will be made today, but GEM-SET will resume next week. =========================================================================
GEM-SET Daily Digest for September 17, 2001

Dear GEM-SET Participants, The Girls E-Mentoring in Science, Engineering and Technology (GEM-SET) pilot test is scheduled to run through September 25, 2001. We want to thank all participants for being a part of this pilot test to encourage young women to investigate careers in science, engineering, and technology. We are pleased to announce that the GEM-SET program will be expanded to run through September of 2002 and several regions will be added to the project. The expansion of GEM-SET will include Region I (Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, Vermont), Region III (Delaware, District of Columbia, Maryland, Pennsylvania, Virginia, West Virginia), Region IV (Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee), Region V (Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Minnesota, Ohio, and Wisconsin) and Region VII (Iowa, Kansas, Missouri, Nebraska). The expanded program will run from September 26, 2001 through September 25, 2002. Through expansion of the geographic area and the duration of the program, we hope to: 1) increase the number of girls and mentors by working with new partners in each region; 2) increase the number of girls in the rural areas of each region, who may not have as much exposure to SET career options; 3) foster a deeper understanding and interest in SET fields for current students; and 4) facilitate communications between regions on the topics of women and girls in SET. At this point in the pilot test, we are asking all participants to consider continuing with the expanded GEM-SET program. Please reply to this e-mail and let us know if you would like to continue or if you prefer to be removed from the GEM-SET listserv. We are also asking mentors, moderators, students, and students' sponsors to complete an evaluation and satisfaction survey. Your feedback will help us to improve GEM-SET during the expanded yearlong project. This survey will be sent to you via e-mail in the next few weeks. Thank you again for your participation! We hope that GEM-SET has been and will continue to be a valuable experience for you. Sincerely, Nancy Chen Regional Administrator Women's Bureau, Region V =========================================================================
GEM-SET Daily Digest for September 18, 2001

Thank you to all participants who have responded that they desire to continue with the GEM-SET program in the Fall as it expands into 30 states across the nation.

=========================================================================
GEM-SET Daily Digest for September 26, 2001

Dear GEM-SET participant,

We would like to extend our warm welcome to everyone participating in the Women's Bureau Girls' E-Mentoring in Science, Engineering & Technology (GEM-SET). Your participation is vital in making sure that the project goals are achieved. The three main goals of GEM-SET are:

1) To increase student participants' awareness of the benefits of working in SET fields and the career options within SET.
2) To increased the number of girls taking SET classes in high schools.
3) To achieve high overall satisfaction with GEM-SET from both the mentor and student participants' perspectives.

The Women's Bureau is committed to expanding the opportunities for girls and women to enter and succeed in education and careers in science, engineering & technology (SET). As we begin the 21st century, it is clear that more jobs will be created in SET than any other field. We know that women can excel in SET careers, which will provide above-average salaries and ensure economic self-sufficiency.

We believe that women in SET fields can help encourage girls to take the classes in science, engineering and technology; show girls that SET careers are fun, exciting and challenging; and share experiences to help girls overcome the concerns and barriers. This is what we hope to achieve through our mentoring program, and we thank the enthusiastic support from our women mentors.

Girls, we hope you will ask questions about education, careers, obstacles, peer pressure or any other issue that arises with education and careers in SET.

The moderator of the day will send out discussion questions to start the dialogue. Girls and mentors can jump in and join the discussion by sending their questions and comments to GEM-SET@uic.edu.

Guidelines for discussion include:

SET classes, classroom problems, classroom successes
SET education and career decisions
Peer pressure and concerns about SET
SET challenges faced by girls and women
SET future opportunities

Each evening a daily digest will be compiled that combines all the GEM-SET discussions into one e-mail. These daily digests will be sent out once each day, Monday through Friday, from September 26, 2001 through September 25, 2002. We want you to participate at the time that is most convenient for you. Feel free to make comments any time, 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Daily digests are intended to prevent your inbox from overflowing, while also allowing the discussion to flow daily. List moderators will be responsible for approving all postings to assure that GEM-SET guidelines are followed.

Thank you for being part of the GEM-SET project. We hope you find this experience rewarding and fun! If you have any problems sending to the list or receiving daily digests, please contact Sarah Shirk, Project Coordinator at sshirk1@uic.edu or call her at (312)413-1636. To unsubscribe to this list or to change your e-mail address send a request to gem-set@uic.edu.
