Barriers to women advancing in their careers, or following a particular career path, can include a lack of diverse and visible role models, as well as a shortage of professional networks to help them.

As part of International Women in Engineering Day (INWED20) celebrations, the Royal Academy of Engineering is hosting a special virtual version of this annual event, where the next generation of engineers have an opportunity to hear from and interact with senior industry leaders. 

Our speaker, Jane Atkinson FREng, the FT's most influential woman in engineering, and a pioneer in her field, will share her insights into being a woman leader.
