What projects / schemes / initiatives to support women’s recruitment, retention and progression in STEM are Mott MacDonald involved in?
We set up Advancing Gender, a focused group to identify any challenges or issues which may affect gender inclusion in the workplace. This, together with an online yammer group help to give women employees a stronger voice and presence within the company. Female managers have been provided with career development workshops to help ensure a pipeline of senior female employees. For National Women in Engineering Day we created a poster showcasing some of our women engineers within the company to raise the visibility of our senior female role models. Colleagues have also been active in attending industry events and talks focusing on gender equality in the workplace. Externally, Mott MacDonald is a signatory for WISE’s Ten Steps campaign and sponsors of the ‘People Like Me’ schools’ toolkit.
Why did Mott MacDonald join WISE?
Mott MacDonald joined WISE to learn from the charity and apply good practice to support gender diversity in STEM careers. We have used the Ten Steps tool and have also engaged with WISE’s ‘People Like Me’ initiative to support girls and boys accessing STEM subjects to support diversity in a sustainable pipeline.
