Quotes

"One of the main reasons to set up this club is because we have such a low percentage of women," Tiernan said. "The goal is to make this a program the college supports that is visible, that lets the community know we are here, the women here know we are here, and that does things to make women visible in engineering."
Group HR director Alan Thomson said: "We are delighted that more and more young women seem to be recognising that engineering and engineering companies represent an exciting opportunity for a rewarding and exciting career."
"I think more girls should get involved in engineering. The job is more about using your mind than it is about using your physical strength. The event has changed my mind about engineering. I used to think it was a man's job, but there are so many different types of engineering and different roles, many are suitable for women."
Rebecca Ridley, Associate Director, UK Client Development at NES Global Talent discussing the male dominated environment: "Oil and gas engineering is a male dominated industry, but don't let this put you off taking the plunge. The industry is working hard to fix the gender imbalance and although there are certainly still issues to overcome, don’t let all the negative headlines put you off, our recent survey shows that 75% of women feel welcome working in the oil and gas industry. Things are changing and there are some amazing careers available in the sector - just look at oil and gas giant Petrobras’ CEO Maria das Graças Silva Foster, she's the first female to make it to the top of the company. Women like her are blazing a trail for others to follow."
