As of 2020, women make up 14.5% of all engineers in the UK, a figure that the industry is trying to raise. While the ratio of female engineers is higher in some other countries, the global average is still low.
At Howden, we strive to employ the most capable and knowledgeable experts in their fields, while also accurately representing the wider world through our employees. We know that many female engineering graduates never take up roles in the profession or end up leaving the industry. We aim to support our female colleagues and give them every opportunity for success and progression. And from this year, 50% of our apprentices and graduates across all roles will be female.
For International Women in Engineering Day, we have spoken to some of our colleagues about their experiences as engineers at Howden.
