In October 2016, the IET launched its social media campaign #9PercentIsNotEnough to highlight the fact that currently only 9% of the UK’s engineering and technology workforce are female.
In June 2017 the #9PercentIsNotEnough Conference will provide a platform for sharing best practice on how to inspire, attract, recruit and retain women into the engineering and technology sectors.
Timed to coincide with the International Women In Engineering Day, this one-day business conference will showcase real, practical solutions to the challenges we all know about – plus networking during the day and in the evening drinks reception.
This conference is aimed at anyone within an organisation, who is responsible for the recruitment, retention and development of women in STEM.
