We are seeking nominations for two award categories celebrating those who have gone 'above and beyond' their work remit or role to improve diversity within engineering and applied sciences in general.
The Amy Johnson Inspiration Award, launched in 2016, honours an individual who has made a truly remarkable achievement in furthering the diversity agenda within engineering and applied sciences. This award serves to recognise the efforts of an individual in inspiring more women to enter and/or remain in the engineering and technical professions. We welcome male nominees and those with no engineering qualifications. More information
The Men as Allies Award, new for 2017, With men holding the majority of roles within engineering and applied sciences, it is crucial that they are involved making the cultural changes needed to attract and retain women in engineering and applied sciences. The Men as Allies Award, new for 2017, seeks to celebrate a male engineer, or professional male working within the engineering, technical and applied sciences sectors, who has gone above and beyond the call of duty to support his female colleagues, and address the gender imbalance within engineering and applied sciences in general.

Deadline for nominations: 9am 22 September 2017
