Raising the profile of Women in Engineering

Friday, August 30, 2013

As Patron of the Women’s Engineering Society and extremely passionate about widening the opportunities for women in engineering, Meg Munn MP was naturally delighted to lend her support to a project headed by Professor Elena Rodriguez-Falcon which aims to change the perception of what exactly it is that engineers do. This project will take the form of a TV programme which showcases how a team of engineers, composed of both men and women, use their engineering skills to solve real life problems.


During a recent meeting with Professor Rodriguez-Falcon, who is Director of Women in Engineering at Sheffield University, Meg was interested to hear about the work being done by the University’s ‘Women in Engineering Society’ in developing a children’s book for primary school aged children to challenge traditional views about engineering.


Meg said:


“It was great to catch up with Elena and hear about some of the initiatives that she and the Sheffield University Women in Engineering Society are undertaking. I am of course pleased to offer my support to Elena’s project, which is looking at a different way of addressing some of the barriers which currently prevents girls and women considering engineering as a career.”
