Position: Industrial Relations Officer

My role as the industrial relations officer is to be the main point of contact between industries and the WiE society. Hosting industry events, talks, visits and planning for the Inspirational Panel Meeting are my main tasks. This year I propose to focus on our committee members’ employability skills by reaching out to recruiters and existing Uni career services. I hope to expand our industry network using LinkedIn as a power tool. I also aim to connect with other WiE societies across the UK to collaborate for different industry events.

Why engineering?
From childhood, I knew I wanted a career which will make me connect with people and help solve global problems. The promising field for the same has always been engineering. 
I wanted to pursue a course that combined my interests in coding, maths and science. My course Computer Systems Engineering is a unique combination of my interests and perfect integration of hardware and software.The diverse set of subjects help me keep my doors open for IT, electronics and robotics !

What made you initially decide to join the Women in Engineering society?
Inspiring and connecting with the young girls and encouraging them to  pursue STEM fields, has always been part of my goals. The Women in Engineering society is an amazing opportunity for me to fulfil my small goal and get a chance to interact with a talented group of engineering girls. I knew the events, talks and opportunities offered by WiE would help me build my confidence as a ‘Woman’ in an engineering field, and help me vanish the gender imbalance in my field. The quote, ‘We rise by lifting others’, clearly expresses the society goal and this is what keeps me motivated to contribute and continue to remain as a part of the WiE family.
