Eagle Lab Engineer
named in the
Top 50 Women in Engineering 2018


We are proud to announce that Sharon Jones, Engineer at our Eagle Lab in Bournemouth was named in The Women’s Engineering Society’s 2018 Top 50 Women in Engineering (WE50) in partnership with The Telegraph at a high-profile event at Royal Academy for Engineering on 26 June.

The WE50 winners this year represent the top 50 female Returners and Transferrers in engineering and allied sectors.

The WE50 winners represent the very broad range of routes it is possible to follow for a career in engineering. Sectors in which the winning women are employed include structural and electronic engineering, health, environment and academia. Our winners are all at very different stages in their careers, varying from early career engineers to senior leadership and from a crane operator to lecturers. The WE50 winners were awarded their trophies at an International Women in Engineering Day Afternoon Tea event held by Women’s Engineering Society, hosted at the Royal Academy of Engineering.

Sharon is naturally delighted and says “Being recognised as one of this year’s Top 50 Women in engineering is very exciting and a challenge to live up to! I am lucky to have been supported by Barclays to learn new skills and delighted that I am able to utilise these, both to support businesses to grow and to inspire colleagues and the next generation that you can do anything.”

“The nominations were all amazing. For the Top 50, we looked for women who had overcome hurdles and returned to or transferred into/or across roles in engineering. In addition, they have all demonstrated that they are doing something to help support and inspire other women to succeed and progress in engineering whether it is working within their organisation through mentoring or inspiring young women through STEM activities for example” remarked Kirsten Bodley, Chief Executive of WES, on the winners and their achievements.
