Description

Author: Paul Lief Rosengren

When a door closed, Kate Gleason found a window — and she thrust it open. Her life took many twists and turns; and in the face of adversity, Gleason redefined herself and her career. Without a formal engineering education, she established herself as critical to her family’s tool business at a young age; helped give the business international exposure, presence and placement (the business is still a leader in its field); and developed a new way of making affordable homes. At a time when women were not represented in many fields and occupations, Gleason gravitated to engineering because, “In engineering, a good idea is a good idea,” she said.
