Starting to get a little bit Brrrrrrr

It’s getting cold so here’s hoping you are all dressed up warm in some lovely new jumpers for the season! On the subject of new, we have some great new products and exciting things in the planning to help ensure that we can be here still for our members in the long term.

Candidates

We have set up a new candidates page so companies looking for new diverse candidates can search the skill set of our members who are currently looking for jobs. Whilst we do charge for any placements we believe that it’s a fair charge to enable us to support the women through our free weekly drop-in Free Three Fridays (F3F) Sessions. We do hope that you will support us in getting our women into great careers with supportive companies and on fair wages.

Jobs Board

We have now opened up our Jobsboard to all companies looking for Diverse candidates, our existing members already have access, but moving forward we have opened the board up to tech companies in the South West to also use.

Workshop Wednesdays sponsorships

The Workshop Wednesdays are going from Strength to Strength and thanks to our great members, we have lots of brilliant things coming your way in the new year!

Also a big thanks to our individual sponsors – it’s great to know we have support from both our members and companies in the city. It makes us feel all warm and cosy and definitely all worth it!!

‘The networked self: exploring formal women’s networks as a source of career development and identity for female engineers’

This event has a twofold aim: First, the dissemination of the research findings from the recently completed project, ‘The networked self: exploring formal women’s networks as a source of career development and identity for female engineers’. The project, drawing upon 48 interviews with women engineers at different seniority levels across the UK (but also in the US and Australia), examined the impact of women’s networks on career development and identity. Second, bringing together all those involved in gender equality in the engineering industry here in Bristol (i.e. gender network leaders, chairs, advisory board members and D&I leads) in order to discuss about gender networks and how they can help organisations to attract, retain and develop their female talent so that we can together set an agenda for Bristol and the South West.
