At HR Wallingford, we are proud to be playing our part in celebrating International Women in Engineering Day (INWED17) on Friday 23 June. Championed by the Women’s Engineering Society, the aim of INWED is to focus attention on the amazing careers in engineering and technical roles for girls, and to celebrate the achievements of outstanding women engineers.
Ian Cruickshank, HR Wallingford’s Director of Engineering, says: "I’m fully behind initiatives that support equality and diversity in our profession. When I was at university in the 1980s, there were just three women in a cohort of 90 students. Things have improved since then, but more can be done, both in the industry as a whole and here at HR Wallingford. We are making positive steps, and I’m proud to say that 100% of the latest group of my colleagues sitting and passing their Institution of Civil Engineer exams were women.”
