EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Future Infrastructure and Built Environment: Resilience in a Changing World (FIBE2)


To celebrate International Women in Engineering Day, Xueying has taken part in 'Gender Equality Today for a Sustainable Tomorrow'; the very first episode of 'Connecting the country' - podcast by @National Highways, the government-owned company responsible for motorways and major trunk roads in England.

“I encourage all the female students who are like me, ready to step into the industry, to listen, learn and network, to gain knowledge and experience. Just be ourselves, be kind, be confident. Let’s help each other and become a better future leader for everyone.” 
                                                                                                                                                                                   Xueying Wang

Tune in to listen to the discussion and join the conversation, as together we can transform the sector and make it more inclusive.

Xueying was joined by four incredibly talented industry professionals in this debate. They are:

·    Anne Shaw, Executive Director at Transport for West Midlands

·    Loretta Bortey, PhD student at Birmingham City University

·    Mel Clarke, Customer Service Director, Operations at National Highways

·    Sue Percy, CEO for the Chartered Institution of Highways and Transportation
