Airedale opens doors to WISE women

UK: Airedale International played host to over thirty 11-14-year-old girls last week for an evening of inspiration and opportunity delivered by Airedale’s female engineers.

The girls from Woodkirk Academy, Wakefield, and Dixons Allerton Academy, Bradford, were given a tour of Airedale’s air conditioning manufacturing facility and listened to presentations from the company’s leading female engineers. These included air conditioning and refrigeration engineer and applications team leader Sue Eversley, computational fluid dynamics and mechanical design engineer Rinku Patel and controls engineer and software developer Ellie Hall.

The evening took place in collaboration with the WISE campaign, who in partnership with Leeds City Council, is running a campaign for gender balance in science, technology and engineering throughout the region.

WISE aims to inspire girls to pursue a career in the fields of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM). The scheme give young girls the opportunity to see first-hand what it is like to work in the STEM sector and to speak with female engineers with diverse careers and backgrounds.

Airedale says it recognises the importance of getting more girls into engineering and are committed to promoting the opportunities in engineering, locally, nationally and internationally.
