Our free event is aimed at inspiring girls aged 14-19 into rewarding and exciting careers. Families, careers teachers, teachers, mentors and anyone interested in careers in engineering are most welcome.

The event will showcase an engaging group of successful locally based women, who will enlighten and entertain us with short, snappy ‘best bits’ presentations about their varied career journeys, and work-life balance, including:

• Rebecca Shemans: Rolls Royce, Engineering Process Specialist
• Foram Brown: Bombardier, Computer Systems Engineer

The presentations will be followed by coffee and an opportunity to put questions to the speakers and gain advice from them.
