Photography Exhibition: Women Engineers - changing face of engineering
The exhibition, which opened on Monday 3 February at the University of Derby, challenges the stereotypes of what an engineer looks like and will also run as part of International Women’s Day celebrations 8 March. The exhibition closes Monday 23 March.
The project, which took two years to complete, began after the photographer, Geraldine Curtis had a chance conversation with a group of women engineers who explained that less than 13% of all engineers in the UK are women. As well as the 19 portraits of women engineers there are inspiring quotes about why they became engineers and what they hope to achieve in the future. There are also information leaflets giving details of career opportunities as an engineer.
Geraldine hopes her exhibition will raise the profile of women engineers, provide role models and encourage more girls to take up a career in engineering.
This FREE exhibition is open Monday - Friday 9.00am - 6.00pm.
