Ebbsfleet Garden City’s Louise Hardy has been named in the Top 50 Women In Engineering list.
Louise, who is a member of the Ebbsfleet Development Corporation board, made the prestigious list on National Women in Engineering Day.
The list includes many familiar senior engineers’ names such as Dame Ann Dowling OM DBE, President of the Royal Academy of Engineering, Naomi Climer, President of the Institution of Engineering and Technology, and Dame Judith Hackitt DBE, former Chair of the Health and Safety Executive and now Chair of EEF the Manufacturers’ Organisation.
The candidates on the list represent the broad range of engineering roles available including industrialists from the traditional built environment, energy and transport sectors, but as well as Ebbsfleet Garden City names include women from the Hilton Group of Hotels, the Merlin entertainment group and many representatives from academia.
The list also includes women who are no longer working as practicing engineers but are nevertheless still influential in the sector.
Dawn Bonfield, Chief Executive of the Women’s Engineering Society who is also the founder of National Women in Engineering Day commented: ‘We had a very high response to this campaign and were hugely impressed with the entries. This list of amazing role models is a great way of raising the profile of our talented women engineers and making them more visible both within the industry and to the next generation.”
Judge Allan Cook CBE, Chairman of Atkins commented: “I was really impressed with the calibre, quality and quantity of the submissions. Reading through the entries it was incredibly exciting to see the breadth of talent we have in our engineering community.”
