    This year marks the 10th anniversary of an initiative Siemens started to encourage young women to consider engineering as a viable career path.

    Once upon a time, long before shiny young people began eagerly humiliating themselves on The Donald’s cable “reality” dumbfest The Apprentice, to actually be an apprentice in this country was a noble enough thing.
