Supporting International Day of Women in Engineering
The International day is aimed at raising awareness that so many fewer women than many work as engineers and to encourage more women to consider Engineering as a career path.
The Council’s YGC department – which is responsible for a range of Engineering, Building control and Environmental projects – is supporting the event by changing people’s vies of what it is to be an engineer. They are doing this by shining the spotlight on some of the women who work within the department and showing some of the job opportunities available in the technical sector.
By being more aware of the opportunities available, it hoped that more girls will be inspired to consider a career in the field and to encourage more diversity among the next generation of engineers.
