Women in Electrical Engineering
Women have traditionally been under-represented in engineering disciplines, but we are aiming to ensure all our staff and students are able to achieve their potential, and build an active community of women in EEE who can share their experiences, and encourage and inspire.
It's an important part of our mission to attract more women staff and students, to make improvements that will provide greater equality and diversity, and to ensure all our staff and students in EEE feel supported and empowered.
Women make up around 12% of the engineering and technology workforce in the UK, which contributes to a skills shortage and a gender pay gap. There is a real need to promote engineering as an exciting, inclusive, and rewarding career, and to highlight the diverse opportunities that exist for women as engineering and technology professionals.
