Women in Engineering and Technology 2023

Our aim is to reduce the gender gap and increase both gender and ethnic parity in the STEM industry!

This year’s Women in Engineering & Technology event on 1st November celebrated many inspiring women. We welcomed leading employers who delivered practical employability workshops and offered fantastic insights into their organisations and the engineering & technology industry as a whole.

Don’t worry if you missed it. Our fantastic filming team captured the entire afternoon brilliantly and is now available to catch up on demand.
