This year, for International Women in Engineering Day we asked some of our colleagues what advice they'd give to a female considering a career in the engineering sector. Check out what they had to say!
Last week we launched a new partnership with WORK180; a global jobs network connecting women with employers committed to equality, diversity and inclusion. As an endorsed employer, we hope to make more females aware of exciting career opportunities within the gas industry. http://glassdoor.com/slink.htm?key=vMFKs
Congratulations to our Director of IT and Innovation Andrew Quail who has been announced No1. CIO in the UK.
We're delighted to be awarded the prestigious ‘Company of the Year’ award at the 2019 Gas Industry Awards, organised by the Institution of Gas Engineers and Managers (IGEM) and the Energy and Utilities Alliance (EUA).
This Mental Health Awareness week we introduced our newly trained Mental Health Supporters. All week they’ve been telling us why they’re so passionate about ensuring positive mental health and destigmatising mental health issues.

We're pleased to report our mean gender pay gap has decreased by 1.0% to 8.8% compared with 2017, well below the national average. We know there's still more we need to do to become more diverse and inclusive - discover our plans in our gender pay gap report.
Once again, we were proud to support International Women’s Day and get behind this year’s theme #BalanceforBetter. To mark the occasion we announced two new development programmes for our female colleagues and heard from our Senior Independent Director, Laura Sandys, about the progress we’re making to break down barriers in the energy industry. We also discovered a number of hidden talents and raised money for Freedom4Girls by sharing photos of our female colleagues which reveal a different side to them.
We're proud to be part of the Inclusion Commitment ensuring the energy and utilities workforce is inclusive and diverse. Our sector is not yet representative of the UK workforce for gender, BAME, disability, and under 24s, and we'll work collaboratively as a sector to drive change.
