A recent MIT study found that women training to be engineers experienced negative group dynamics, felt marginalized and were assigned less challenging tasks than their male counterparts. Has this been your experience?

Although I think big strides have been made since I came out of school, I still see some examples where female engineers in training still seem to be a bit on the outside. It is more common when dealing with some of the "old guard" but I have noticed that as the younger generation of engineers are coming up, it appears less common.
