Allianz takes part in INWED21 as it strives for more female representation in engineering 

Posted: 23 June 2021


Engineering needs better female representation, and Allianz are undertaking many initiatives to help encourage women of all ages into the profession. These include:

  • Building gender bilingual advertisement
  • Introducing Apprenticeship programmes
  • Creating a gender smart recruitment process
  • Providing flexible working
  • Building internal employee networks (focusing on gender, cultural diversity and ethnicity, mental wellness, disability, sustainability, and working parents)

Chris Little, Director, Engineering Construction & Power at Allianz Insurance said: “We are very happy to support the Women’s Engineering Society by taking part in INWED21 this year.

“In the engineering sector, only 12% of all engineers are women in the UK, there is a shortage of female talent an abundance of roles that need to be filled by professionals. 
“We must begin thinking outside of the box, in terms of how we encourage women to take up a career in engineering to create gender equality across the industry.”
