Female engineers from Network Rail and the Thameslink programme gathered at the Bermondsey Dive Under construction site on June 23, to celebrate Women in Engineering day.
The national day was set up by the Women’s Engineering Society to promote the industry and inspire more women to become engineers.
To encourage women to join, NR has introduced a women’s staff network and flexible working policy. It is aiming to increase the proportion of female engineers from 14% to 30%.
