Across the years we have hosted many events for our Alumni, all of which can be revisited as podcasts.

Our 2021-2022 “Authentic You” series provided inspirational tools and advice, as well as how you can influence your career progression at work.

In 2022-2023, our webinar series “My Career, My Journey” explored the careers of successful women in the Engineering Industry, all of whom are alumni of our EMPOWER programme. They take us through how their career started, include some key advice, and provide insight into their career successes.
