The engineering sector is generally male dominated with the industry suffering due to low numbers of women studying STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) subjects and men continuing to dominate undergraduate degrees in engineering & technology.
At Howden we are proud to be involved in a number of initiatives to try to increase the represenation of women at all levels of our business. This includes working with local schools to encourage female students to consider engineering as a career.
