Member News | ACC Board Member Mae Whiteside Williams Honored for Women’s History Month

ACC Board Member and Owner of CKL Engineers Mae Whiteside Williams was interviewed by CBS 2 in Chicago in honor of Women’s History Month. Williams has been running her own engineering firm, one of the few Black women-owned in the country, for 14 years. Growing up in public housing, she saw the effects of stagnant infrastructure and wanted to find ways to improve society. Civil engineering became that way for her. “…Be patient with yourself. If you can visualize what you want to do with yourself, continue the vision, stick it out.” You can watch the full interview here and follow this link to donate to her Illinois Tech scholarship fund.
