Aileen Jamieson delivers on community pledge
Delivering on her Turner & Townsend community pledge to create opportunities for young people, Director of Downstream Aileen Jamieson recently spoke at the Women in Engineering Career Confident event held at the University of Edinburgh.
The seminar brought together over 60 female students, graduates and early career engineers to provide career advice and improve employability. Aileen, a chemical engineering graduate, and representatives from other engineering disciplines provided a short overview of their careers, followed by a question and answer session and networking.
Aileen said, “It was a real honour to speak at the Women in Engineering event and play my part in inspiring the next generation of engineers. Women are still under-represented in engineering, a fact that leads to loss of diversity in talent and innovation in the discipline. Raising the profile of female engineers and providing insight into the careers engineering can bring will be key to the future success of the discipline.”
