Stirling Dynamics, a part of the Expleo Group of companies, is pleased to announce its company partnership with the Women’s Engineering Society (WES). Stirling is a fast-growing, advanced engineering company that delivers a range of complex systems and technical services to the aerospace and marine markets. Trading since 1987, Stirling has accumulated a wealth of knowledge on over 70 different aircraft types and multiple marine platforms, delivered to both civil and military programmes around the globe.
In the UK, women make up around 12% of the engineering workforce. This statistic shows a clear imbalance within the industry and highlights that women are a source of untapped potential. Stirling is determined to help encourage girls and young women into engineering careers. The company hopes to achieve this by promoting engineering as a challenging, creative and rewarding industry that offers exciting career opportunities to all.
Commenting on the WES membership, Stirling’s Business Unit Director, Dan Clark stated: “We are passionate that all young talent should be aware of the different options and possibilities the engineering industry has to offer, regardless of gender. We hope that our membership at WES will help us to inspire future female engineers and provide a forum where our current workforce can share ideas and come up with new ways to promote inclusivity in engineering”.
Over the next year, Stirling will be reviewing how it can take further steps forward in strengthening their commitment to helping achieve gender equality in engineering. For more information on Stirling, visit the company website https://www.stirling-dynamics.com/
