The 12 per cent

Welcome to the second #Build2Perform, the CIBSE podcast. Last week we discussed Green Sky Thinking Week and the future of sustainability - this month, we're talking about women in engineering and National Women in Engineering Day, organised by the Women's Engineering Society. Join Matt Snowden, Sara Kassam, Juliet Rennie and Susie Diamond, and check out some of the resources below

Remember, you can also find the podcast on the iTunes app so you can download it and listen on your commute, and you can find news and discussion of the topics covered by looking up @CIBSE on Twitter or searching #Build2Perform




In the second #Build2Perform podcast we discussed women in building services engineering and women in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics - where women make up just 12.5% of the active workforce.

Some useful resources:

  • The Women's Engineering Society is a charity and a professional network of women engineers, scientists and technologists offering inspiration, support and professional development. Working in partnership, we campaign to encourage women to participate and achieve as engineers, scientists and as leaders.
  • National Women in Engineering Day was set up by the Women’s Engineering Society (WES) to celebrate its 95th anniversary. The idea behind National Women in Engineering Day is to encourage all groups (Governmental, educational, corporate, Professional Engineering Institutions, individuals and other organisations) to organise their own events in support of the day.
  • The Women in Building Services Engineering (WiBSE) network aims to support and encourage women joining, working, staying and progressing in the building services industry. They work to increase the number of women choosing a career in all sectors of the building services industry, to support those already in the industry to enable them to achieve their career goals and to encourage more women to join the Institution and contribute to its governance and activities
