Celebrate National Women in Engineering Day with our evening networking event, ‘Be Inspiring, Be Inspired’
To mark this year’s National Women in Engineering Day, Equate Scotland is once again joining forces with WES Scotland and hosting an evening networking event in Glasgow. ‘Be Inspiring, Be Inspired’ will give you the chance to hear from a fabulous panel of invited speakers, before networking with like-minded people over nibbles and a glass of wine.
Growing the number of women studying and working in engineering is a complex challenge! To make meaningful and sustainable change, we all need to work together – engineers, educators, employers and policy makers. You’ll hear first-hand from a panel of top professionals, keen to share their expertise and tell you about the inspirational work they’re doing to support women in engineering:
· Jillian Thomas, Senior Firmware Engineer at Finmeccanica Airborne and Space Systems Division, will share her experiences of being a woman engineer and what she’s doing to inspire the next generation
· Joan Stuart will describe the forward-thinking work that Scottish Power is doing to support women in engineering, and how it helped them win the award for Best Large Private Sector employer at the 2016 ‘Scottish Top Employers for Working Families’ awards
· Douglas Morrison will explain the ground-breaking work that City of Glasgow College is doing to build the pipeline of women in engineering, and the very positive impact it is already having
So, if you’re a woman working in or studying engineering – or an employer, educator or policy maker who supports the development of female engineers – please do register here to come along. And be sure to tell your friends and colleagues!
