On 14th August I presented to Ruyton Girls’ School for National Science Week, sharing how I use my engineering mindset of critical and strategic thinking, curiosity and creativity to solve problems from brain injury to gender equity.
I shared examples of my work at Arup to show how engineers can shape a better world, why we need diverse perspectives doing that shaping – and how it can truly align with their passions and transferable skill sets. I also ran the People Like Me workshop from WISE Campaign for Ruyton’s year 8 cohort. It was a privilege to have the opportunity to show these young women all the potential they have in engineering and science career destinations.
A big thank you to Susan Fryer for the invitation and all of her work in developing generations of STEM capable women!
