Scottish Engineering INWED Breakfast Session – Fri 26th June 2020
Women make up around 12% of the engineering sector in the UK. With a large skills gap looming and the need for a more diverse workforce, it has never been more important to inspire and encourage more people, especially women, to choose a career in STEM.
While we see many UK engineering firms already well engaged in driving better gender balance in the engineering profession, more work is needed in promoting ethnicity/race. That’s why for this particular session we have reached out to inspiring women within the BAME community to join us as our guest speakers, in the hope that we can help to provide a platform and amplify the voices of women who are so often under-represented in our industry.
Please join us for this fun and informal online session on the morning of Friday 26th June in celebration of International Women in Engineering day on 23rd June. Please note that this event is not exclusively for women – we enthusiastically welcome everyone to attend. The aim of this session is to raise the profile of women in STEM, whilst celebrating their achievements and hopefully inspire the next generation of STEMinists.
