Written by EDYOU FM Staff on February 18, 2023
In celebration of Women and Girls in Science Day, Chrysann Clarke, a civil engineer, was recently a guest on the Women EmPOWERment program on 99.9fm/99.7fm. Ms. Clarke’s work in civil engineering is an inspiration to women everywhere, as she helps to pave the way for greater gender diversity in the field of science and engineering.
As a civil engineer, Ms. Clarke is responsible for supervising and monitoring construction operations, preparing progress reports, and payment valuations. She ensures that quality control procedures are being adhered to during construction activities and coordinates geotechnical investigation activities, such as Cone Penetration Testing and Standard Penetration Testing. Additionally, Ms. Clarke interprets and analyzes soil data and prepares reports based on her findings.
Ms. Clarke’s role as a civil engineer also includes assisting with building foundation designs, the preparation of proposals, tender documents, and design documents. Her work requires a great deal of technical expertise and attention to detail, which she has honed through years of study and practical experience in the field.
During her interview on the Women EmPOWERment program, Ms. Clarke shared her experiences as a woman in a male-dominated field. She noted that while there are challenges associated with being a woman in science and engineering, there are also opportunities for growth and advancement. Ms. Clarke emphasized the importance of networking and building relationships with other professionals in the field, as well as pursuing continuing education opportunities to stay current on the latest industry trends and best practices.
Ms. Clarke’s contributions to the field of civil engineering are a testament to the valuable role that women can play in science and engineering. By breaking down barriers and pushing for greater gender diversity in these fields, women like Ms. Clarke are helping to ensure that future generations of women and girls have the opportunity to pursue careers in science and engineering and make a positive impact on the world. We thank Chrysann Clarke for sharing her time and knowledge with us, and wish her continued success in her work.
