If you have a qualification in engineering then the Women In Engineering Society is looking for your views on pathways for women engineers and what can be done to keep qualified women in the sector.
WES president Dr Carol Marsh said: “Engineering is at the heart of the UK's economic future and the UK is currently acknowledged as a world leader in several key sectors. To maintain this leadership requires an ongoing pipeline of talent drawn from all parts of society. Women engineers and related STEM professionals who have left the sector, but who could return, have a key role to play.”
This survey is focused on obtaining a picture of this talent pool. WES are keen to understand more about the employment situation of women who have obtained an engineering or related STEM qualification (science, technology, engineering and maths) and how the industry can attract these women back into the workforce, if they have left for any reason.
This questionnaire can be completed by any woman with a STEM qualification in engineering, applied science, IT or maths whether you are still in the industry or have left it.
Initial results from the questionnaire will be available in June 2014 on the websites of our partners listed below and the final report will be published in the Autumn of 2014.
Participants can register to receive survey results. By registering your details you will be entered into a competition to win a £50 M&S Voucher. Full data protection criteria apply.
Replies received before 31 May 2014 will be incorporated into the preliminary dissemination of results on 30 June but the survey will remain open until a closing deadline of 30 September 2014.
