ACE and Ramboll are joining forces to celebrate International Women in Engineering Day on 25 June.
The free afternoon event (3.30pm to 6.00pm), which takes place in central Birmingham, includes prestigious industry speakers who will share views and experiences of encouraging and supporting more girls into a STEM future, as well as how the industry can inspire women to consider a career in consultancy and engineering.
