Taking Positive Action to Build Your Talent Pipeline

Equate Scotland
Stirling Court Hotel, Stirling University, FK9 4LA
Wednesday, June 15, 2016 - 09:15 to 13:00

The engineering sector in Scotland is thriving. Developing and maintaining a diverse workforce means the sector will have the skills it needs to respond to increased demand and sustain it into the future.

Equate Scotland and City of Glasgow College are delighted to invite you to ’Taking Positive Action to Build Your Talent Pipeline’, a free half-day seminar aimed at employers in the engineering sector. The day focuses on how you can take positive action to address the gender imbalance in engineering and attract more women into the sector. You’ll hear from employers who have taken action - by offering work-based placements and returnships –   and are already reaping the rewards, the women they’ve supported, and a legal expert on the do’s and don’ts so you feel confident about your next steps.
