Women in Engineering National and Division Committees have been approached by a number of organisations to provide advice and guidance on how to set up a successful in-house professional women's program.
This blueprint has been developed with industry partners including Alcoa, Ford, IBM Australia, NSW Transport RailCorp and Sinclair Knight Merz. The paper looks at programs proven to encourage and retain women in the engineering profession including issues to consider, some of the key messages to achieve success and some lessons learnt.
