Overview

This year, to celebrate International Women in Engineering, we are joined by our female fellows in the region, exploring their interests, challenges, and successes.

This event is the first regional workshop for women in ICE Fellowship in Yorkshire and Humber, building on the inaugural digital event for this network (ICE Connects) in October 2021 and a central networking opportunity in March 22, in One Great George Street.

The workshop will help instigate the Women in Fellowship Network, discussed at the very first event, giving attendees from Yorkshire and Humber, the opportunity to share their views on what we could do in the future.

Attendees are encouraged to bring along a female colleague who might be considering applying for fellowship soon.
