Women in Engineering
Get inspired, get networking
and get a whole host of new contacts

The Women in Engineering Forum, supported by the Women's Engineering Society, will take place on 27 April at The National Engineering & Construction Recruitment Exhibition.
Register to attend the exhibition now!
Offering women at all stages of their career the chance to share experiences, make new contacts, and hear about exciting new vacancies, the Women in Engineering Forum provides an invaluable networking opportunity in what is a tough, male dominated industry.
The forum will begin with a presentation from award-winning engineer Gemma Whatling at 12 noon, followed by a networking lunch to which delegates are welcome, giving them the opportunity to speak informally to both the speaker and a host of engineering professionals, who will be on hand as facilitators.
The forum is free to attend and places are reserved on a first come, first served basis, so arrive early to avoid disappointment! Sign up for the networking lunch on the day at the presentation theatre.
Gemma Whatling (pictured above) recently won the Karen Burt award following her nomination from the IMechE. From a young age Gemma has been involved in design technology competitions gaining the title of 'Young engineer for Wales' and 'Welsh innovator of the year' for her inventions. Gemma embarked on a career in medical engineering and has since then become a research fellow at Cardiff University working for the Arthritis Research UK Biomechanics and Bioengineering.
Gemma will be speaking at 12pm on Friday 27 April in the Women in Engineering Forum.
