"Thales recognises the benefits of a diverse workforce and the economic need to increase the number of engineers across the UK. The work of organisations such as WISE is crucial in achieving this as we simply must employee more female engineers in order to meet the demand. It is not about one company going it alone, industry, education and academia must work together, guided by WISE in order to change the face the STEM workforce."
