International Women in Engineering Day
On 23rd June 2020, International Women in Engineering Day celebrates all the amazing female engineers who #ShapeTheWorld, whose expertise pushes boundaries, challenges the status quo and provides inspiration for young engineers in the making. Female engineers need continuous support to grow their careers and forge a path for others to follow. Take your pick from these everywomanNetwork resources, free to access throughout June. #INWED20
Since September 2018, Shrouk El-Attar has worked as an electronic design engineer at British company, Renishaw. In 2019, she was one of just six women from across the UK shortlisted in the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) Young Woman Engineer awards.
With a looming skills shortage in the STEM industries, the race is on for young Emirati females to study science, maths, engineering and technology at the educational institutions now open to women.
There’s no doubt that the engineering industry is an exciting place to work: after all, what could be more satisfying than designing and producing innovative new products that can make a real difference to the world?
Nicola Pattimore, Group HR Director at Equiniti discusses how role models and learning and development can have an impact on the progression of women in business.
Melanie Eusebe talks intimately with us, recalling how illness actually became the most pivotal moment in her career and the female role models that have inspired her to "turn passion into profit".
Role models are talked about often in business and they’re key to progression. In this workbook, we start by looking at the influence of early role models and explore what makes a good role model. We advise how to find and access role models both in real life and virtually before looking at how you can pay it forward and become a role model to inspire others.
