ACSE Celebrate Record Attendance for International Women’s Day
By Anna Roberts on 08 March 2017
International Women’s Day has got lots of people excited this week and it is truly great to be working in a sector where, whilst female engineers may be fewer in numbers overall, they drew a record attendance at the ACSE Down the Pub Seminar last night.
There was a great atmosphere in The Occidental as Jane Armstrong (Taylor Thompson Whiting), Marie O’Looney (SDA Structures) and Joyce Lee (Arcadis) all individually took to the stage to showcase some of the specialist structural projects they have personally delivered.
The calibre of projects in the presentations yesterday and the overall record attendance of both female and male engineers last night is an indication of the equality and mutual respect that exists within the Structural Engineering space in Sydney.
Constructive are proud sponsors of the Association of Structural Engineers (ACSE) and Natasha and I are regular attendees at all of the committee’s events, ranging from last month’s annual Barefoot Lawn Bowls to the seminars which take place on the first Tuesday of every month.
The “down the pub” seminars are informative, interesting and a great opportunity for engineers to catch up with colleagues, both new and old.
If you haven’t been down the pub for one of the seminars before they are the first Tuesday of every month at the Occidental Pub. A friendly, inclusive group of Structural Engineering’s ranging from University Students to Managing Directors are in attendance. Everyone is welcome and it is a great opportunity to expand your network and learn something new.
Hopefully see you on Tuesday 4th April.
