Let's Hear It for Our Trailblazing Women

Marilyn Jorgenson Reece visits the I-10/I-405 Interchange during the construction phase.
The California State Library published an online calendar of special women in the science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) fields. This calendar encourages young women to choose careers in these areas. The May calendar featured Marilyn Reece, California’s first woman engineer. This month’s calendar features Irene Itamura, the first woman to lead a Caltrans regional district. Please visit the calendar to learn more about Irene and other women in STEM fields.
