Mentioning the unmentionable; menopause!

At Engineering Together we have never been shy in talking about difficult subjects.

Working in collaboration with the Women’s Engineering Society and ICE North East we gathered some great speakers.

This event draws on personal experiences from women in STEM. We were delighted to have Lauren Chiren from Women of a Certain Stage as an expert host.

To date this was our only SOLD OUT event and our most watched YouTube.

I’m BUZZing

I do get to do some fabulous things. This one was a personal fave…

I got to speak at the same event as Dallas Campbell and Andy Aldrin AND got photos with my Lottie Books (and it was you can see how super-chuffed I was!) AND got some wonderful feedback.

What a day!
