I am delighted to welcome Julie Harrison as our Climate Change Champion.
Julie has been a Science and Engineering Presenter for over 10 years and is a Director at ‘Climate Action North’. She delivers projects in Schools to demonstrate careers in Engineering and Science.
Julie’s new project is ‘Climate Change – Scientists and Engineers needed’ will highlight the work currently going on in and around the Tees Valley and showcase how the current and future STEM workforce can help work towards a more sustainable future. As Chair I am certain that Julie’s expertise in the area of Climate Change will complement the work of Engineering Together so we can make a difference through education and action.
Our Committee’s and Subgroups are always on the lookout for volunteers to help support our activities.
If you are able to give your time or resources then please get in touch, we would be delighted to hear from you.
Volunteering is good for your professional development and it makes you feel great as you can really see the difference you make.
Engineers from all sectors are welcome to join us on the Council.
Another great way of getting involved is becoming a STEM Ambassador (https://www.stem.org.uk/stem-ambassadors) and then can volunteer to help out at the events organised by Engineering Together and others.
We had lots of activities in the last month from many of our Council Members in the Tees Valley.
Paula and Jackie were pleased to be asked to be on the Monster panel and reported it was a great event.
Andy reported that www.engineeringtogether.com was up and running with an agreed framework and message across all social media platforms. Huge thanks to MAA Digital for temporality hosting the web pages.
IHEEM STEM week planning well underway and it is looking to be a good week.
Our informal diversity get together also planned for January.
The RSA Women of Achievement at MIMA was publicised with help from a Radio Zetland interview by Paul I, Jackie and Jo making this event truly inclusive and wide reaching.
Moira from Engineering UK also gave us overview of NECoPE Tyneside group which everyone found interesting including outcomes from Bring It On which is a flagship event in the North East.
