Women at Amey
We're passionate about working towards achieving gender parity at Amey. We're working hard to attract and keep more women in our teams especially in under-represented careers like engineering.
We have inspirational women working at every level of our business, but there is a long way to go before they are equally represented. At the current rate of progress it would be 2095 before women are equally represented across the globe ('HeForShe' campaign) – and we just can’t wait that long which is why we signed up to the United Nations 'HeforShe' campaign.
Our 'Women@Amey' network has over 400 members. We aim to attract, support, develop and retain females at Amey by supporting women to achieve their career goals, celebrating their successes and by promoting our business and what we do, to a wider female audience.
Encouraging girls and young women into STEM careers
We visit schools, colleges, universities and girl guiding groups to promote STEM subjects. We aim to break down stereotypes and raise awareness of opportunities for females in STEM careers. The success of our girl guiding engineering badge has been phenomenal. We've had over 150,000 requests for our pack and we're really proud to be making a difference.

Supporting our talented women
