Raising an Electrical Engineer

How do you make an engineer? Guest engineer Leyla Yilan shares her thoughts. Leyla is an electrical and computer engineer at chip-maker AMD, as well as a proud parent of two daughters.

Then she talks about how she tries to expose her kids to different fields like she was. Also hear Leyla talk about equivalence checking, being a daughter of an immigrant, gendered toys, bringing your daughter to work, and more.
