The Institution of Engineering and Technology – The IET Young Woman Engineer of the Year Awards

The IET Young Woman Engineer of the Year Awards honours the very best early career female engineers working in the UK today.

These prestigious engineering industry awards celebrate women working in modern engineering – and aim to help change the perception that engineering is predominantly a career for men by banishing outdated engineering stereotypes of hard hats and greasy pipes.

As well as highlighting female engineering talent, the IET Young Woman Engineer of the Year Awards seek to find female role models who can help address the UK science and engineering skills crisis by promoting engineering careers to more girls and women. Just over one in ten (11%) of the UK engineering and technical workforce is female (source: 2017 IET Skills Survey).

To celebrate the Awards, which marked their 40th anniversary this year, the IET delved into the perceptions of a ‘typical engineer’ and found that the stereotype of an engineer is alive and well amongst school children and their parents.

The Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents – RoSPA Health and Safety Awards

The Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) is a charity that has been at the heart of accident prevention for more than 100 years and is privileged to have the Patronage of Her Majesty The Queen. Our mission is to facilitate the exchange of life-enhancing skills and knowledge to reduce serious accidental injuries.

Having evolved since its origin in 1956, the RoSPA Health and Safety Awards are widely regarded as the leading means of celebrating and recognising excellence in health and safety management.

With almost 2,000 entries across 25 countries, RoSPA Health and Safety Award entrants protect circa 4.2 million employees across all industry sectors. Combined, the four annual ceremonies host more than 2,500 guests at the evening gala dinners and almost 4,000 at the daytime ceremonies.

Data from the entries feeds into RoSPA occupational health and safety policy work and a community of RoSPA Award winners has been established to share best practice.

Constantly battling against the “elf and safety” culture, RoSPA Awards are seen as the “ones to win”, adding fun and glamour to the industry.
