This article is an installment in IEEE Antennas and Propagation Magazine's ‘Women in Engineering’ column, re-launched in 2019. This contribution is intended to add to the dialogue shared by the authors and to provide a different angle for women and men in engineering. In this article, Kathleen L. Melde, professor of electrical and computer engineering at the University of Arizona, Tucson, reports some considerations and lessons learned during her career about leadership, providing a different angle of view for women and men in engineering. Her experiences have had a significant impact on her current role as associate dean for faculty affairs and inclusion in the College of Engineering, supporting staff members and students in a large public university.
