Supporting Women and Girls in Engineering

Only 11% of the UK's engineers are women. Research shows that girls need to see women succeeding in STEM to feel that STEM is a potential career path for them.

Women Like Me is a peer mentoring and outreach project aimed at boosting female representation in engineering. The project pairs senior women engineers with junior women engineers to give them mentoring support as they start out in their engineering careers.

In turn, junior women undertake engineering education outreach in schools and at public events in the Bristol and Bath area. Engineering is a creative, socially conscious, and collaborative discipline, and this project aims to support girls and women to make a difference in society.

Join us for the launch of Women Like Me 2020/21, listen to inspirational speakers, network with other women engineers, find out what the project will be getting up to this year and how you can take part.
