The WES conference proved to be a very inspiring event for me. Meeting women who have progressed exceptionally in the engineering field has given me an insight into what it means to be a female in the industry and how engineering companies can greatly benefit from recruiting a more diverse workforce. I learnt how to ensure that a CV is effective and the importance of having excellent presentation and interpersonal skills.
Furthermore, the theoretical knowledge I gained from my undergraduate study was put into context by listening to female engineers talk about the how engineering can be used to benefit developing countries, highlighting that engineering not only has a physical impact, but it can also have a social benefits too.
