AN ACTION-MINDED WOMAN OF DIVERSE EXPERIENCE
If you haven’t met Dr. Lisa Lazareck-Asunta, who began her tenure as IEEE Women in Engineering (WIE) Committee chair in January 2019, then you may not know how many hats she has worn. Aside from being a wife and mother, her education and career path have provided her the opportunity to be an academic, a television host, a coder, a project manager, a grant advisor, and more. Through all of her roles, however, the common thread has been looking for chances to promote science and engineering and ways to help people. It’s this action-oriented mind-set that she brings to IEEE WIE.
Lazareck-Asunta realized in her teens that she wanted to be an engineer. “I was selected to go to an engineering conference for females, and I came home and said I want to be an engineer,” she says. Funny enough, this isn’t a memory she recalls, but it’s a story shared by her mother, whom she calls her “biggest fan and champion.”
