The number of women employed in engineering globally is low. Likewise, the construction equipment sector has work to do to attract more women. Progress is being made and by working together – men and women –a better gender balance can be achieved.
Equal representation of engineering skills is imperative to tackle some of the biggest challenges facing us as a society and approach these challenges from as broad a perspective as possible.
"Engineers need to be more visible in society to make young people realize there are heroes here as well’, says Anna Sannö, Research Strategy Manager at Volvo CE.
"Engineering is a ticket into a world of opportunities, a chance to improve the lives of people with technology.”
