International Women in Engineering Day 2019

To celebrate International Women in Engineering Day, we caught up with Harriet Thompson, a third-year undergraduate student embarking on a career in Civil Engineering.

Find out more on Harriet’s insight into what inspired her to study Civil Engineering, the challenges she faces and how female engineers are transforming the future in a male-dominated industry.

Every year on 23rd of June, International Women in Engineering Day celebrates the inspiring global achievements of past and present women with careers in the engineering industry worldwide! INWED is an international awareness campaign to raise the profile of women in engineering, focusing attention on the amazing career opportunities available to young female professionals in this exciting and dynamic industry! Originally established in 2014 to mark the Women’s Engineering Society’s (WES) 95th anniversary, since launching National Women in Engineering Day has grown enormously, receiving a UNESCO patronage in 2016. This year’s theme was #TransformTheFuture, celebrating women whose careers have challenged the perception of women in engineering and have transformed the future for ensuing generations of female engineers!

At Root2 Recruit we wanted to know more about young women who are just kick-starting their careers in the engineering industry, so we met up with Harriet Thompson, a young professional on a mission to become a Chartered Civil Engineer! With just a year left before she’s finished her studies, Harriet told us about what and who inspired her career ambitions, the challenges she faces, how women engineers can be better represented in the education system and of course, how women are transforming the future!
