We all know there is a shortage of simulation engineers in the UK. We have too few engineering graduates and they don't all get jobs in engineering, let alone in simulation. We need to attract and retain more people and one group that continues to be under-represented is women. Even when women become simulation engineers, they may not stay long term. Why is this and how can the situation be improved? The biggest challenges are often around suitable role models, confidence, flexible working patterns and returning after a career break.
Come along and consider the role NAFEMS could play to address these issues and others that arise.
