Connexin is proud to celebrate International Women in Engineering Day 2023 by welcoming three impressive female engineers to our team. This development highlights our commitment to gender diversity, equal opportunities, and a supportive environment for women in engineering. The new additions will bring fresh perspectives, innovation, and valuable expertise to Connexin, enriching our workforce and promoting inclusivity in the engineering industry.
Among the trio of new engineers, one talented individual brings a wealth of experience, having spent three years within telecommunications and her industry knowledge is set to make valuable contributions to Connexin’s ongoing success.
Following their successful completion of Connexin Academy’s Advanced Fibre Training Bootcamp, we are thrilled to welcome two highly promising trainee female engineers.
These determined young women are on a path to becoming fully qualified engineers within just 12 months, thanks to an intensive traineeship program delivered internally. As part of their training, they will also pursue accredited engineering qualifications, solidifying their skills and paving the way for an exciting career in the field.
With these recent additions, women now comprise 9.75% of Connexin’s engineering department, a notable step toward achieving gender balance. They also account for an impressive 17.07% of the field engineering team, exemplifying our dedication to increasing the representation of women in traditionally male-dominated sectors.
Lisa Greeves, Head of Engineering Operations at Connexin, expressed the company’s commitment to establishing a workforce that encompasses a wide range of backgrounds and promoting equal chances for everyone.
“The industry offers many opportunities, including installing, networking, planning, infrastructure, and operational management” she stated.
