This issue of ""Leadership and Management in Engineering"" is dedicated to understanding and learning about diversity and how the profession of Civil Engineering is adapting to the many differences of owners and stakeholders. According to Gloria Jean Jeff, Chair of ASCE's Committee on Diversity and Women in Civil Engineering, ""Diversity is more than gender, race, ethnic background, or the replication of the traditional ""civil engineer"" behavior patterns. Diversity is about opportunity and excellence. As leaders, ASCE must act upon the vision of diversity by providing opportunities to all.""
