Union chair at AWE, Jenny McGrother, has been the driving force behind improving gender equality at work and encouraging women into STEM roles.“It’s so important to believe change is possible and not to accept the status quo. It may not be easy or overnight, but it’s crucial to believe that if we push hard enough, change will come.”
“This is especially important for AWE where we have a demanding technical programme and STEM skills are our bread and butter. The action planning workshop hosted by Prospect in conjunction with WISE was a real driver in moving our thinking forward”, Helen Smith, Talent Management Specialist, AWE
