Ingenious Women

In Info on 2010/11/22 at 10:02 am

The UKRC for Women in SET and the Royal Academy of Engineering are running a media training program for 30 hand-picked women engineers. It is called ‘Ingenious Women’

I had the privilege to be selected in August for that, and we are already half way through the program.

As part of the media training, we write blogs about our activities, our daily lives as females in a male dominated professional world and our interests and motivations.

I have written two blogs already, and these can be found here and here.

I would love to hear what you think and, please, feel free to comment below!
