Protean Advanced recently attended the STEM the Gap event at the Manufacturing Technology Centre, Ansty. Hosted by the Tilly Shilling Initiative, the event celebrated the centenary of the Women’s Engineering Society (WES) with WES CEO, Elizabeth Donnelly as one of the keynote speakers.
The day looked at a wide range of issues surrounding diversity and inclusion within the engineering community including ethnic and cultural inclusivity, parental leave and raising the profile of STEM subjects amongst young people. High-profile speakers included Dame Judith Hackitt, Martine Gagné (CTO at Meggitt) and Yen-Sze Soon (Managing Director at Accenture). An area that was covered particularly well by Yen-Sze was unconscious bias, which is summarised by Accenture in their video Inclusion Starts with I.
