instrumental in shaping all-inclusive ethics if adopted in the place of the moral hero. On the contrary, the Sibyl concept is predominantly vague based on the context of the article, and I do not see its relevance to the profession disparity in question. By using the classical mythology of a wise woman, Sibyl, the author bases her argument on anticipation of
Surname 9 moral maturity that seems impossible to achieve with the diversity of human identity. She blindly thinks that revealing the origin of the discrimination will inform the engineering profession to embrace women in the career willingly.

Overall, I like the article since it logically identifies the problem and comprehends by providing alternatives to address the societal issue. Personal commentary section Ethics refers to a set of moral philosophies and ideologies that determine what is right from what is wrong in a specific society.

Notably, the engineering profession should become value-sensitive and foster the relationships within society. Therefore, the engineering profession should involve men and women as a moral culture instead of generating gender disparities witnessed in the contemporary world.

Surname 10 1. Self-introduction Hello to everyone, receive warm greetings despite the life-threatening global pandemic that devastates humanity across all social and economic divides.

Undeniably, I am glad to finish the first year in my academic life as a petroleum engineering student at Mines and anticipate coming a sophomore next fall. Academic life at Mines seems enjoyable with the practical aspects though quite involving and cumbersome reading a variety of coursework and research materials.
