About this talk

HR webinar: Retaining women in engineering, science and technology My Family Care and An Inspirational Journey talk to leading engineering and technology companies to explore and understand their successful approaches. Only about 8%* of engineers in the UK are women and both the lack of female graduates and the loss of skilled women from engineering remain pressing concerns in this profession which continues to experience a strong gender imbalance. Other science and technology sectors face similar challenges. Jennifer Liston-Smith, My Family Care Director of Coaching & Consultancy and Heather Jackson, CEO and founder of An Inspirational Journey, are joined by Sue Cooper, HRD UK & Europe of Atkins and Joanna Hodgson, Industries & Business Development Technical Leader, Europe & UK of IBM. They’ll be having an in-depth discussion about the issues, challenges and solutions to retaining women.
