What projects / schemes / initiatives to support women’s recruitment, retention and progression in STEM are Cordant Engineering involved in?
Our projects fall into three main streams:
1. Helping our clients to recruit and retain women into engineering roles within their businesses, promoting best practice and enabling knowledge sharing throughout the industry.
2. Supporting our candidates, and women working in the industry, by providing networking opportunities and personal development sessions.
3. Promoting engineering careers to young people in schools and colleges through outreach and careers support.
Furthermore we are addressing our internal gender balance, building an inclusive environment for women to work in the engineering recruitment sector. Our membership of WISE enables us to support their excellent work in all these areas, while giving us the benefit of their research and expertise to ensure we are providing a useful and effective programme.
