Celebrating Women in Engineering

Celebrated annually on 23 June, International Women in Engineering Day (INWED) is a time to celebrate the achievements of women engineers. Recognized internationally, this event plays a crucial role in raising awareness about women engineers and showcasing the exciting career prospects available. This year, we celebrated our team members all month long. Take a look at the amazing women that are integral to SGH’s success.

What advice do you have for your younger self?

Who is your hero?

When asked about who they look up to, SGH team members showed that they’ve been inspired by many people in their lives.

How do you help others grow?

Susan Knack-Brown reflected on watching Casey Williams grow from attending her first site visit to running her own projects.
