Today (23 June) is National Women in Engineering Day; an initiative fully supported by PEME, that is inspiring women to pursue a career in engineering.
National Women in Engineering Day was set up by the Women’s Engineering Society (WES) to celebrate its 95th anniversary. The aim is to celebrate the work that women do in engineering and to showcase the great engineering careers that are available for girls.
PEME have established an apprentice training scheme, which has provided excellent career opportunities for young women. PEME Associate Director, Karen Pike, said “PEME takes gender equality seriously and we ensure all our staff enjoy the same rights and opportunities. It is a source of great pride within PEME that we now have a number of very talented female technicians, engineering specialists and operations managers that have flourished out of the PEME apprenticeship scheme”.
