The annual event is an opportunity to honour the very best early-career female engineers working in the UK today, and by doing so, promote STEM careers to more women and young girls.
Anna Will, Consultant within the System Design and Management team, said that she is “thrilled” to have made it into the final of the upcoming Institution of Engineering and Technology’s (IET) annual Young Woman Engineer of the Year Awards.
Anna’s manager, Kathryn Yardley, commented on Anna’s achievements:
“Anna has been with Frazer-Nash for almost five years. During the course of her engineering career, she has made great strides towards advocating the field within schools and universities; undertaking individual mentoring of other female engineers in her spare time. Her passion and encouragement played a huge role in her application, and she has the support of the entire business behind her for the final.
People Director and Diversity and Inclusion Committee Member, Sam Geis, added:
“As a corporate sponsor of the Institute of Engineering and Technology, Frazer-Nash is proud to support a cause which works hard to promote diversity in the workforce, highlight the current skills shortage in the UK, and inspires current and future female engineers.
“We are committed to fostering a working culture that allows our people to be themselves, feel empowered to achieve their personal and professional goals, and know that we respect the unique value they bring to the company.
“Our people are at the very heart of what we do, and we want everyone to feel they belong. Diversity and a culture of inclusion are vital for us if we are to build a strong sustainable business that harnesses innovation and creativity.”
The event will take place from the Institute of Engineering and Technology’s London headquarters once again this year, with attendees able to register join via a live link to watch the ceremony unfold on the night.
