STORIES THAT HAVE INSPIRED US

Griselda Togobo

Forward thinking engineering

Griselda Togobo, Managing Director, Forward Ladies

"I decided not to return to engineering after having my first child. Instead, when I discovered Forward Ladies, an initiative to close the gender gap by giving women in engineering leadership training, networking opportunities and career support, I helped to grow it into a nationwide network.

I want to bring real voices from real women into the debate. Because if there’s no shift in the dialogue, there will be no shift in culture.”

The people who shape the world, should reflect it

Hayaatun Sillem, CEO, Royal Academy of Engineering

“When I became the CEO at the Royal Academy of Engineering, I decided my primary mission would be to encourage young people from every background to become engineers.

I passionately believe that the people who build the world we live in, should reflect that world. Right now, the engineering industry is 91% male and 94% white. We’re going to change that for the better.”

Caroline Missen

Diversity is good for business

Caroline Missen, Business Advisor to Downstream Director and Chair, UK Gender Equality Network, Shell

“I volunteer as Chair of our employee gender equality network, because I believe we all have an obligation to work towards making our workplaces, and hopefully society more equal. The programmes that we support, and the change that we influence, help both men and women to equally flourish and support more women in reaching leadership roles. 

My role gives me the opportunity to influence key decision makers and ultimately affect the way we recruit and retain female talent at Shell.”
