engineering careers  First female president of IET proposes quotas to boost numbers of UK female engineers

Naomi Climer was appointed president of the IET last week, the first woman to hold the position in the institution’s 144-year-history. One of Climer’s first initiatives as president is now to demand quotas to increase the number of British women in engineering. The UK has the EU’s lowest proportion of female engineers and this has remained flat for decades.
