This event forms part of our celebrations for Women’s History Month, and will explore the historical and future role of women in shaping our cities.


This March 24th, the DETI Inspire team at UWE Bristol’s School of Engineering will be hosting a live event to celebrate Women’s History Month – Empowering Women in Engineering.

Joining us for the event as keynote speaker is Chartered Civil Engineer and Bridgemaster at Clifton Suspension Bridge, Trish Johnson.

During her talk, Trish will be sharing experiences of her career journey, including her current role supporting the conservation of Clifton Suspension Bridge – an engineering marvel, and iconic historical landmark in our city of Bristol.

There will be a Q&A plus Networking and Nibbles – an opportunity to meet and chat to other local women engineers and STEM professionals from the West of England.
