"More women are needed in engineering," says Professor Elena Rodriguez-Falcon from University of Sheffield as she discusses the #MadeForMe campaign launched by University of New South Wales on prime time Australian television via the ABC.
We must continue to spread the message
"Supporting the Made By Me campaign, along with my further work on Diversity and Inclusion I'm undertaking at The University of Adelaide, is an extension of what we do in Engineering at Sheffield and across the UK," explains Elena. "Wherever we are, we must continue to spread the message that the more female engineers we have in one place, the more we'll have women engineers everywhere else. We need a chain reaction when it comes to gender diversity in engineering."
