We are celebrating the amazing work that the women in STEM are doing to support lives and livelihoods every day. International Women In Engineering Day helps to raise awareness of women within engineering and STEM professions and recognises their continued successes. This years’ event on June 23rd marks 95 years of the Women’s Engineering Society.
We are proud of the talent team of females we have in our business and want to encourage more women to be part of the solution and are helping to build towards a brighter future. From workshops with Speakers for Schools and CITB to mock interviews, apprenticeship fairs, site visits and our very own Construction Academy with Derwentside College, we are inspiring more females to a choose a career in the construction sector.
By encouraging participation amongst under-represented groups and providing opportunities to meet like-minded women we can create a thriving, inclusive industry.So today, we’re taking the opportunity to put some of our own female engineers in the spotlight
