Proving there is no I in team

Proving there is no I in team
You can’t always plan for everything, because more often than not life is what happens when you’re making other plans, as John Lennon said. That certainly was the case for Dr Catherine Ramsdale, VP of Device Engineering at PragmatIC as she explained she didn’t always know what she wanted to do, and as much as she has achieved in her career, it is down to natural evolution in the industry.

What barriers do women face when it comes to leadership?

What barriers do women face when it comes to leadership?
As the engineering industry becomes more diverse and equal, and we see an increasing number of women within the industry, it is a great sight to see and leads me to believe that all the hard work is paying off for women. However, when you then take a look at the statistics of diversity within leadership roles in the industry this isn’t as positive. So although we have reached some level of progress, and can see the number of women in engineering on the rise, why are these women not passing through to leadership roles - is there something deterring them?

Women in STEM shape the future with amazing tech and engineering

Women in STEM shape the future with amazing tech and engineering
WISE, the campaign for greater gender balance in STEM, says women are shaping our future with their technological, scientific and engineering discoveries and inventions. However, the organisation highlights that more needs to be done to ensure that more women do not miss out on these opportunities.

Women in the STEM industries – why does discrimination exist?

Women in the STEM industries – why does discrimination exist?
It’s no secret that science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) are industries primarily dominated by men. The ratio of women earning jobs in these fields are extremely low compared to men. Statistics from 2017 show that women made up only 23% of the STEM workforce. Although this is low, this is 105,470 higher than the number in 2016.
