INWED21: In My Defence – A poem celebrating women in engineering


To help mark the day, we’re turning to poetry…

Yes, that’s right. Leonardo, the aerospace specialists, kindly shared with us a poem written by the most senior female engineer within their electronics business in the UK.

‘In My Defence’ is written by By Paula Clarke, Engineering & Project Director UK, Leonardo.

Hopefully it will help to inspire the next generation of female engineers! You can hear it read below, with verses read by a number of Leonardo’s leading female engineers.

Excellent.

Note that it is estimated that women currently make up less than 10% of the engineering sector in the UK.
