International Women in Engineering Day, brought to you by Women’s Engineering Society (WES) will celebrate its 9th year in 2022 and figures as of June 2021 show that 16.5% of engineers are women. INWED gives women engineers around the world a profile when they are still hugely under-represented in their professions. As the only platform of its kind, it plays a vital role in encouraging more young women and girls to take up engineering careers.

For anyone interested in an engineering apprenticeship with MGTS why not take a look at our current vacancies on offer and you could be joining us in September to start an exciting and rewarding career.

Here’s Stephanie, one of our first year engineering apprentices explaining what influenced her career choice.

WES: Inspiring Women in Engineering

The Women’s Engineering Society is a charity and a professional network of women engineers, scientists and technologists offering inspiration, support and professional development. Working in partnership, we support and inspire women to achieve as engineers, scientists and as leaders; we encourage the education of engineering; and we support companies with gender diversity and inclusion.
