Margo Bubb and Stacey DelVecchio StoryCorps Interview, Clip 3, 2008

Stacey DelVecchio explains to Margo Bubb that she better understood the purpose of the Society of Women Engineers after she received her first promotion at Caterpillar and no one, except a few friends from SWE, congratulated her because there was a perception that she was promoted because she was a woman. They discuss how things have changed at the company since then, and DelVecchio tells how she got the CEO of the company write a handwritten card congratulating another staff member who won a national award from SWE. Bubb and DelVecchio are both engineers at Caterpillar Inc. and active members of the Society of Women Engineers.
