As we celebrate International Women in Engineering Day 2023, we take great pride in honoring the remarkable women engineers at Douglas Partners. Their talents, skills, and contributions play a vital role in shaping our industry.
As an engineering consultancy firm, we understand the significance of gender diversity and inclusivity in the engineering industry, and this year, we are excited to celebrate the progress we have made in empowering women. Building upon the success of our inaugural Women Event, “Consulting Women at Douglas,” last year, we continue to foster connections, inspire growth, and create a more diverse and inclusive culture within our organization.
Promoting Connection, Inspiration, and Growth
Last year, we hosted the first-ever “Consulting Women at Douglas” event. This event provides a unique opportunity for us to collaborate, exchange ideas, and address the challenges we face in the industry together. Through open dialogue, collaboration, and the exchange of innovative ideas, we aim to create an environment where all individuals can thrive. We look forward to hosting our Consulting Women at Douglas again this year.
This year we also actively participated in various STEM programs to inspire and encourage young girls to pursue careers in engineering. By engaging with the next generation of female engineers, we aim to break down barriers and empower young women to embrace their passion for science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM). Through mentorship programs, internships, and outreach initiatives, we strive to create a pipeline of talented female engineers who will contribute to the growth and innovation of our industry.
As part of our commitment to safety and promoting the #MakeSafetySeen theme of International Women in Engineering Day, we extend our gratitude to Sally, Ashika, and Liz for sharing their valuable safety tips. Their contributions help raise awareness and emphasize the importance of creating a safe working environment for everyone involved in engineering.
By championing diversity and inclusivity, we are shaping a brighter and more equitable future for women in engineering.
