29th April: Gender Diversity in Engineering
Thursday, 29 April 2021
09:30 AM - 10:45 AM
iO Associates, are delighted to bring you the first Engineering Virtual Meetup, taking place on Thursday 29th April at 9.30am. Our first guest speaker is Tiffany Dawson, ex-mechanical engineer turned career coach for women in STEM, who will be discussing ‘Gender Diversity in Engineering - Why it Matters & What You Can Do About It’.
Despite efforts to address the imbalance, as of 2020 just 10.4% of those working in engineering identified as female. In this session we will be looking to share insights and resources around D&I and covering topics such as;
- The current gender balance landscape in engineering UK
- Why it matters
- Why gender inequality still exists in engineering
- What you can personally do about it
More about Tiffany
Tiffany Dawson teaches step-by-step frameworks to become confident, strategy-savvy and influential leaders with ease and grace. Having worked at global engineering consultancies across Australia and the UK, she witnessed and experienced the many challenges women still face in male-dominated industries. After overcoming her own battles with impostor syndrome and poor work-life balance, she was compelled to teach other women to do the same. You can often find Tiffany speaking at events about gender equality in STEM and sharing career advice on her podcast, How to be a STEMinist. Find out more here: https://www.tiffanydawson.co/
