At Jones Engineering, we are keen to promote engineering to all and we recognise that to build the future, it is paramount that we inspire the next generation, and encourage Women in Engineering. Catriona Gallagher, Division Manager states that “Promoting STEM from an early age will make women aware of their unlimited potential.” With “many opportunities for women to progress their careers in the industry,” Catriona adds that “hard work and good ideas are recognised whatever your gender.”
