The event will be hosted by BBC’s Steph McGovern and aims to engage with young women and help encourage them into the rail engineering sector. The event offers a unique insight into the types of careers and pathways within the rail industry.
Dr Lucy Bull, Design & Development Engineer said “With females making up only 6% of the country’s engineering workforce, Tinsley Bridge are enthusiastic to support initiatives that attract young women to consider careers within our sector. This would also make a significant contribution to resolving the UK skill shortage of trained scientists and engineers”
Year 12 students from invited schools within the Sheffield area will be invited to the event where they will take part in a Q&A session as well as an interactive group activity with support from rail industry professionals.
