How can we maximise team performance by improving the diversity? How do we make our way in Science and Engineering? When we get stuck, how do we find our way out? Kirsty Clode is Chair of WiME (Women in Science and Engineering), has a PhD and BSc in Chemistry and an advocate for developing people. The Manufacturing and Engineering sectors have a skills shortage and a lack of diversity – there is a real war for talent and she has used her own experience to help companies to attract more diverse candidates to their organisations. She will talk about collaboration, perseverance and using your networks to overcome blockers to success and her top tips for being confident in your capability. She also shares how chemistry’s best asset is to train you in how to think and why she is bringing change to the recruitment of women!
