    The event will include: 

    • Success stories and practical advice from a range of Scottish employers that are recruiting, developing, and retaining top female talent
    • Personal stories from women in engineering about the barriers they’ve faced and what has helped them overcome these
    • Top tips on how flexible working can be leveraged to attract and retain women, especially mothers, in engineering roles, and help create a positive, inclusive culture that benefits all workers and the business  
    • The chance to question the expert panel
    • Networking opportunities
    • Light refreshments
