Renishaw colleagues at the Girls into Technology event.

Renishaw has reportedly held two workshops at a Girls into Technology event in Gloucestershire, UK. The event showcased the technology industry to girls aged 12 to 14 and outlined a variety of careers available in science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM).

During the workshop, Renishaw development engineer Rosie Broxton, gave a talk on her own journey into engineering. ‘Young people often feel under pressure to know exactly what they want to do when they are older,’ she said. ‘During my talk, I shared my engineering journey with the girls because it is reassuring for them to hear from someone they can relate to.

‘It is important that young people have role models to look up to when choosing a career,’ she added. ‘I was lucky to have had encouragement from STEM teachers and contact with employers as part of the Engineering Education Scheme.’
