Less than 20% of jobs in the Engineering sector go to women.

It is important to create stronger networking links and promote the need for diversity in the engineering workplace. We intend to strengthen the link between female students in the faculty and the women making great strides in the sector. As well as increasing employability for female students for when they graduate from Leeds.
