26 Jun Ford engineers host female students from Essex schools
On Friday 23rd June, Ford engineers hosted 84 female students from local Essex schools at the Dunton Technical Centre in celebration of International Women in engineering day.
Ford is working to reduce the gender gap in science, technology, engineering and math careers by inviting female students to gain an insight into the activities that go into engineering some of the best-selling vehicles on the roads globally, including the Ford Transit that is designed and engineered at the Dunton Technical Centre in Essex.
The schools that attended were The Billericay School, Seven Kings School, Southend High School for Girls, Frances Bardsley Academy Ford Girls, Coopers Company and Coborn School, Mayflower High School, and The Sweyne Park School.
International Women in Engineering Day is just one of the initiatives Ford supports in the effort to reduce the gender gap.
