Why Attend?

In the UK, the average childbearing age is 31, yet 57% of female engineers leave the profession by age 35, compared to just 17% of their male counterparts. This alarming statistic highlights the urgent need for organisations to develop robust strategies to retain and progress female engineers, particularly mothers.
