DR CAROL Marsh, OBE, Head of Digital Systems at Scottish satellite communications firm Celestia UK and Chair of the Institute of Engineering and Technology (IET) Council, is adding her voice to the call for more women to take up careers in engineering by delivering two presentations on International Women in Engineering Day on Thursday 23rd June 2022.
Organised by Women’s Engineering Society (WES), https://www.wes.org.uk/, International Women in Engineering Day is an annual event, now in its ninth year, that celebrates women engineers and encourages more women and girls to pursue engineering careers.
Dr Marsh will take part in ‘Celebrating Women in Engineering’, a special event being hosted by CeeD, the Centre for Engineering Education & Development at Forth Valley College, Falkirk, from 9.30am to 1pm on 23rd June.
She will join other speakers who promote engineering careers and support women in engineering and industry to talk about her career in electronics, covering how technology has changed over the last 40 years and whether engineering is more gender diverse now https://ceed-scotland.com/civicrm/event/info?reset=1&id=1607
On the afternoon of International Women in Engineering Day, Dr Marsh will take part in a discussion being organised by SSERC, the Scottish Schools Education Research Centre1, that looks at the changing world of electronics. She will look at how technology has moved on and how gender diverse opportunities have kept up.
“International Women in Engineering Day is a fantastic initiative that shines the light on women engineers in varied and interesting roles around the world, giving them a profile and making the call for others to join them,” said Dr Marsh.
“I am fortunate enough to work in a profession I love that challenges me every day, and I want to help spread the word so that more women engineers feel inspired to embark on similar journeys and fulfil their potential. Don’t miss the discussions taking part on the day – register today.”
