Women in Materials Group Spring Meeting
On Friday 15 March 2019, the Women in Materials group held its spring seminar at the University of Birmingham. A range of students, academics and industry experts came together to discuss careers, mentoring and networking.
Talks were given by Dee Harris from Jaguar Land Rover, Louise Gale from Rolls-Royce, Amy Gandy at the University of Sheffield and Emma Kendrick from the University of Birmingham, who all spoke about their careers into materials science and engineering fields. ‘I like the applications of materials science that change the world around us,’ said Louise Gale from Rolls-Royce. The day finished with a panel discussion on a book entitled, ‘Rise of the Rocket Girls’.
Thanks to Sarah Boad, Membership Development Manager at IOM3 for organising the event. The next WIM event will be the celebration of International Women in Engineering Day in June. Check the WIM website at www.iom3.org/WIM for details
