#ILookLikeAnEngineer: A Twitter Meme That Speaks for Itself

3 Aug 2015 5:24pm, by

There’s a Twitter meme that started today called #ILookLikeAnEngineer. It doesn’t really need explaining. The tweets and pictures speak for themselves.

The campaign, started by four women, is trending on Twitter. Here’s the post by Isis Anchalee, explaining how and why it started.

There’s a sense of humanity to the campaign that makes it real and very effective.

The meme goes way beyond the “women in tech” efforts that pop up. This is more about people expressing themselves, showing who they are and what makes them individuals.

Good stuff.
