What is Allied Women in Engineering?
Mentoring and Support
We provide the role models and the training to become a leader.
You don’t become a leader when you are promoted to a manager role, you can become a leader at any point in your career - whether someone gives you permission or not. Leadership simply means to stand for something and to engage others in that mission to bring about change. We believe that if every engineering business had a “leader" within its ranks who is concerned with evolving the work environment to be an enjoyable, safe and empowering place for everyone, then our industry would be a more innovative, more progressive and more attractive place to work for the next generation of talent.
We host in-person events in the UK, as well as an international platform to unite leaders in our industry from around the world…
Our first in-person event will be hosted on International Women’s Day (March 8th) here in the UK. However, we will also be providing a platform to connect with amazing women in our industry overseas, learning from their stories, their leadership journeys and collectively being a supportive force for them and they for us in return.
Creating change inside a workplace can feel like an impossible task. How do you get people to change their behaviour after years and years of doing the same and thinking the same way day in day out? If we’re not careful we can start to feel like a workplace culture of respect is a hopeless dream which is the most demotivating feeling in the world. Change is not easy, nor quick, but it can happen and we know how. So it is our intention to teach this to those who want to drive change within their workplaces to create work environments that encourage positive relationships, productivity and a motivated team who all help each other.

Created by Allied Global Engineering Partner, Bethan Jepson.
It's no secret that the level of diversity within the engineering, manufacturing and construction sectors is not great. And this remains to be an ongoing challenge for both individuals and business leaders.
So this is where we come in... Allied Women in Engineering aims to be an inclusive, all-round support system for individuals who want to maximise their potential and experience fulfilment, joy, belonging and purpose when they come to work every day, AND also for leaders to have the support to evolve their internal systems and processes within the business that lead to a happier, more motivated workforce with a diverse range of perspectives, skills and experiences which can contribute to the sustained growth of the business.
