Allianz Insurance pushing for engineering equality as it showcases the best of female talent

Allianz Insurance is proud to take part in the International Women in Engineering (INWED) Day 2021 this year as it strives for greater representation of female engineers.

Falling on the 23rd June this year, INWED21 is organised byt the Women’s Engineering Society and showcases the best women in engineering around the world.

As part of the celebrations, Allianz will be sharing profile interviews with some of its top engineers, talking about their day to day lives and the ups and downs of being in the field.

Engineering needs better female representation, and Allianz are undertaking many initiatives to help encourage women of all ages into the profession. These include:

  • Building gender bilingual advertisement
  • Introducing Apprenticeship programmes
  • Creating a gender smart recruitment process
  • Providing flexible working
  • Building internal employee networks (focusing on gender, cultural diversity and ethnicity, mental wellness, disability, sustainability, and working parents)

Chris Little, Director, Engineering Construction & Power at Allianz Insurance said: “We are very happy to support the Women’s Engineering Society by taking part in INWED21 this year.

“In the engineering sector, only 12% of all engineers are women in the UK, there is a shortage of female talent an abundance of roles that need to be filled by professionals.

“We must begin thinking outside of the box, in terms of how we encourage women to take up a career in engineering to create gender equality across the industry.”
