Established since 2016 our events have been empowering women to pursue their career aspirations despite the gender imbalance within those sectors.
Women make up only 12% of the engineering workforce in the UK.
Every year our aim is to reduce the gender gap and increase both gender and ethnic diversity into the engineering industry amongst generation Z.
Continuing to deliver an incredible event virtually this year, making the event as inclusive and wide-reaching as possible.
Filming from our event home, The IET, 2 Savoy Place, London and broadcasting live to the comfort of your homes, universities or favourite hangout spot.
As the world begins to open back up, why not get together with your society mates or course peers to enjoy the event socially? We would love to see your group selfies and comments during the event.
