Enhanced by Engineering: Celebrating Women’s Leadership and Engineering Excellence

In collaboration with YRP West Midlands Region and the IET West Midlands


With the theme of this year’s International Women in Engineering Day of ‘enhanced by engineering’, join us to celebrate the successes of women in engineering who are making a difference to people’s day to day lives, leading in the engineering field, challenging stereotypes in a male-dominated field and promoting diversity and inclusion in engineering.

Hear from our fantastic speakers from a range of backgrounds, followed by a panel discussion and finally networking and refreshments.
