Each year, to mark International Women in Engineering Day, we like to highlight the experiences of the inspiring women in our network and find out how they started their journey into studying a STEM subject. In this special episode of the IP Podcast, Sarah Richmond (Senior Associate) interviewed Jessica Gagen, Aerospace Engineering Graduate, model and the reigning Miss England, about her experiences and the importance of the female role model.
Female engineers around the world are still hugely under-represented, with the latest figures indicating that only 16.5% of engineers in the UK are women, meaning the part of a female role model is more important than ever. As a firm that has an almost 50/50 gender split, we understand the importance of the part we play in encouraging young women and girls to pursue an education or career in science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM).
