Amy Johnson Inspiration Award

The Amy Johnson Inspiration Award, launched in 2016, honours an individual not currently working as an engineer or within the applied sciences who has made a truly remarkable achievement in furthering diversity within these fields. This award serves to recognise their efforts in inspiring more women to enter or remain in the engineering and technical professions. We also invite male nominees and those with no engineering qualifications to apply.

Nominations for the 2021 award are now closed and the winner will be announced at the Caroline Haslett Lecture in December.
