ICE Annual Debate - Institution of Civil Engineers

Yorkshire and Humber
Institution of Civil Engineers
Annual Debate
Thursday 7 May 2015, 18.30
This year's topic:
“This house believes that more than positive action is required to challenge
social norms and encourage more women into engineering."
There is no doubt that to meet the future needs of the country and continue to compete internationally the
UK must incorporate more women into the sector from the rich resource pool the UK offers.
This educational debate, chaired and debated by industry professionals from across the profession, will
explore the reasons why there are still so few women working in engineering and discuss what more, if
anything, should our profession do.
