This issue of "Leadership and Management in Engineering" is dedicated to understanding and learning about diversity and how the profession of Civil Engineering is adapting to the many differences of owners and stakeholders. According to Gloria Jean Jeff, Chair of ASCE's Committee on Diversity and Women in Civil Engineering, "Diversity is more than gender, race, ethnic background, or the replication of the traditional "civil engineer" behavior patterns. Diversity is about opportunity and excellence. As leaders, ASCE must act upon the vision of diversity by providing opportunities to all." Papers include: "Face Value: The Silent Diversity Challenge"; "Land of Plenty: Diversity as America's Competitive Edge in Science, Engineering, and Technology"; "Diversity in Engineering"; "The Inherent Personality of Women as an Asset to the Engineering Workplace"; "Mentoring"; "Mentors and Role Models: Are They Important"; "Differences in Nonverbal Communication Styles Between Cultures: The Latino-Anglo Perspective"; "Diversity is Smart Business for True Success"; "Questions and Answers for Managers"; "Diversity by the Numbers"; "Engineering Academic Diversity: It's the nondiverse who need to participate"; "Structural Engineering for Attaining and Maintaining a Diverse Workforce"; and, "A New Day for ASCE".
