Celebrating International Women in Engineering Day

Jun 21, 2024 | News

At Brill Power, co-founder Carolyn Hicks who also acts as CFO and COO of the company, flies the flag to recruit more and more women in engineering.

The Women’s Engineering Society launched International Women in Engineering Day ten years ago to promote the work of women engineers around the world. The 2024 edition focuses on enhancing women engineers with the hashtag #Enhancedbyengineering for the campaign. Receiving UNESCO patronage in 2016, INWED supports the industry to become more inclusive and help women in engineering to fulfil their potential.

Carolyn Hicks shares her engineering journey in two interviews this week, with The Engineer and The Manufacturer.

Her message is simple: engineering offers great career opportunities with the chance to enjoy one’s love of mathematics and physics. As many women, Carolyn who shone in math and physics, hadn’t particularly considered engineering and had applied to varied university courses, ultimately choosing engineering for the reasons mentioned above.

With the Manufacturer, she delved into the obstacles to a career in STEM for women and why she thinks that you don’t need to be “one of the guys” to belong.
