Inspiring Engineers with Rachel Skinner, London

About this event

Following last year's successful sessions, the first of the 2018 Inspiring Engineers programme will see Rachel Skinner, Head of Development, WSP and ICE Vice President speak on 'How I am shaping the future'.

Launched in 2017 by the ICE London and South East England Diversity Taskforce, the Inspiring Engineers programme of events invites industry leaders to speak on how they have achieved success in their fields. The series will celebrate diversity of engineers and showcase the different career paths within civil engineering. 'Inspiring Engineers' aims to inspire a new generation of civil engineers to follow in their footsteps.

Each month, a speaker will give an informal topic on how they made it in their career. Given in an informal setting, the events will encourage attendees to ask the questions they have always wanted to ask and share their own experiences of the industry.

Come along, network and be inspired by other civil engineers from across the industry!

A light breakfast will be available.
