International Women In Engineering Day

26-06-17
Advisian has celebrated International Women In Engineering Day ahead of the INWED day on 23rd June.  Engineers from the Advisian and INTECSEA group joined together for lunch.

INWED is coordinated by Women’s Engineering Society and focuses attention on the amazing careers in engineering and technical roles with the aim of encouraging more girls into Engineering. It is also a day to celebrate the achievements of our outstanding women Engineers. 30% of our Woking staff are female, well above the national average. The office has also signed up 15 staff as STEM Ambassadors willing to volunteer their time, enthusiasm and experiences to encourage and inspire young people to achieve more and progress further in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM).

Asset Management Lead and event organizer Kirsten Oliver said, “This day is not only about celebrating the wonderful women we have working here, but to promote engineering as a career which is just as popular amongst girls as it is boys.”
