Episode 6: Coral Torres

Episode 6: Coral Torres

Coral Torres is without a doubt one of the coolest engineers I’ve ever met. She exudes confidence in herself and her work; all the while remaining truly humble. It was a pleasure to join her for an afternoon at the Surface Transportation Board offices and learn a bit about her niche in the industry. Coral’s official title is ‘Transportation Industry Analyst’, which she explains in this episode. More broadly speaking, she analyzes data to interpret railroad performance in a regulator capacity (if that sounds a little out of your depth, Coral explains it much better than I do!). She also shares how her identity as a Hispanic woman has shaped her experiences in Engineering. The transition from undergraduate studies in Puerto Rico to a master’s program in upstate New York was incredible and Coral describes some of the culture shock moments she experienced.

Donna has worked in Tech for a number of years and has experienced many situations in which she had to advocate for herself or a coworker in matters relating to LGBT+ identity. We also reflected on how to practice self-care in the workplace and Donna shared some advice she wishes her younger self had known.
