ScottishPower have sponsored the Top 50 Women in Engineering since it started in 2015 and are proud to sponsor the event again this year.
The nominations for the “Top 50 Women in Engineering” are now open, with the winners being published on 23rd June 2018 - International Women in Engineering Day.
The theme for 2018 is “Returners or Transferrers” and is open to professionals who need not have taken a straightforward career route. They could be women who have returned to work after a career break, or those who have jumped over into engineering from another sector – or even switched between different areas of engineering. From software to aerospace or structural engineering, nominations are welcome from all fields. We would like to say huge congratulations to everyone who has worked hard, to not only enhance their own career, but inspire girls and women of all ages.
At ScottishPower, it’s our belief that the contribution you can make is key – we have ambitious plans for the way that we supply energy for generations to come and we’d love to talk to you about how you could play a part in them.
What is ScottishPower doing to encourage women in engineering?
ScottishPower continues to support a range of initiatives, this includes events in Scotland, designed to inspire young girls to become the great thinkers and creators of tomorrow.
For the past two years we also participated in a Women Returners Programme which is designed to provide women with a pathway back into STEM employment. We are again supporting this programme in 2018.
ScottishPower are in Year 2 of a two year Gold sponsorship with POWERful women, an initiative launched by powerful women to offer mentoring to senior females. POWERFUL women seek to advance the professional growth and leadership development of women in the UK’s energy sector.
