Gender equality in engineering
Engineering offers a stimulating and rewarding
career and yet women remain underrepresented across the UK sector.
There are many complex reasons that contribute to
this, not least because historically engineering professions have been occupied
in the majority by men.
However, the landscape is changing with industry determined
to encourage more women into the profession.
The University of Plymouth and the School of Engineering
have a critical role to play in preparing the next generation of engineers,
from all backgrounds and identities to thrive in their future careers.
Similarly, within academia, women have historically been underrepresented in engineering disciplines.
The School is committed to removing gender bias and promoting a positive working environment where all employees feel empowered to achieve their professional goals.
