National Women in Engineering Day is a day dedicated to raising the profile and celebrating the achievements of women in engineering.
As a business, Cundall is seeing more and more applications from talented women (our 2014 Graduate intake was almost 50% female, which was a huge leap forward, and compares very favourably with the industry average, which is thought to be only 11% female). We work hard to provide a great place to work for all of our people, irrespective of gender, and monitor our workforce statistics closely to ensure fairness and equality across a variety of metrics.
To mark the day, we asked a number of our female employees to share their views and experiences being a women in the engineering industry.
- Chloe Agg, Senior Mechanical Engineer, Birmingham
- Gwen Brewer, Senior Fire Engineer, London
- Caitlin Cooper, Junior Civil Technician, Newcastle
- Ozak Esu, Graduate Electrical Engineer, Birmingham
- Kavita Kumari, Senior Sustainability Engineer, London
- Belinda Morgan, Mechanical Partner, Birmingham
- Mariana Trusson, Senior Sustainability Associate, Edinburgh
- Azzahra Mahmud, Graduate Structural Engineer, Newcastle
We encourage women and men around the world to join the conversations and add comments to the blogs posts. We would love to hear other people’s experience, tips, networking groups or initiatives for Women in Engineering.
Since the launch of the blog we have also had some great posts by various female engineers, who are sharing their knowledge with the industry, these include:
- Nine ways we are reducing our paper consumption in Doha By Roslina Rahim
