On November 2nd, 2023, Electronic Specifier hosted its first Women in Technology and Engineering event. The evening, which offered attendees networking opportunities and valuable discussions, was a testament to those attending and nominated.

The event was led with a keynote by Ama Frimpong, the Head of Development at 52 North Health. She discussed professional resilience and personal fulfilment in the face of career challenges. Additionally, a panel was curated by Paige West, the editor of Electronic Specifier. The panel, which included tech leaders from diverse sectors, reflected the call for a more inclusive, diverse and versatile industry.

Paige West said: “It was a powerful gathering of shared aspirations and grounded expertise. We’ve ignited a dialogue that not only reflects the current state of women in tech but also paves the way for a more inclusive future. This is just the start, and we look forward to growing this community through our content and future events.”

Electronic Specifier has also recently promoted a Data Science student, Beth Floyd to the position of Marketing Associate. In her new role, Beth will be the main point of contact for manufacturers who wish to be listed on EDS and EDI.

Here at Napier, it is great to see a fantastic celebration take place for Women in Technology and Engineering and we look forward to seeing future changes towards inclusivity in STEM.
