Rural network to support NSW women in engineering roles

Charles Sturt University has launched Women in Engineering, a free mentoring and support network for female professional engineers, researchers and engineering students in rural New South Wales.

Shara Cameron, the university’s engineer-in-residence, said the initiative aimed to build “a positive and engaging culture” to support female students and attract more women to engineering courses at the university’s Bathurst campus.

“There are no female engineering groups in regional NSW, and female engineering professionals often face work environments where they are the only female engineer,” Cameron said in a university statement.
