Raising my Engineering Festival with Justine Greening

The engineering sector and STEM careers fail to attract students from disadvantaged backgrounds and women. We must challenge perceptions and stereotypes to address our productivity crisis.

In September I am hosting Wiltshire’s first Festival of Engineering, to inspire the next generation of designers and engineers from all backgrounds and genders.

Yesterday I asked the Secretary of State for Education if she would be interested in attending the event http://festivalofengineering.com/
