The NCE 2019 Recognising Women in Engineering Awards winners were announced at a private dinner held at the Ivy in central London on Thursday 20th June. Dr. Sauer & Partners’ Emma Barnes who is responsible for all recruitment in the UK was recognised for her contribution to gender diversity. Emma has been instrumental in raising the percentage of female engineers in the company to over 50% - this figure was around 20% just five years ago.
Although not the overall winner, we are delighted that Emma has been acknowledged for her significant efforts for gender diversity at Dr. Sauer & Partners’ in the particularly male-dominated world of tunnelling. Many congratulations to all the worthy winners on the night.
