Johanna O’Driscoll, Financial Director at Tarmac, has been announced as one of the Top 100 most influential women in the engineering sector. The list, produced by board appointments firm Inclusive Boards and in partnership with the Financial Times, will be officially released at the Inclusive Boards: Women in Engineering Leadership Conference on 22 October.
Inclusive Board will also publish extensive research into engineering in the UK, as well as the results of its diversity survey of the UK’s Top 500 engineering firms by revenue.
“As someone who cares passionately about building a supportive workplace where everyone can reach their potential regardless of gender, age, dependents, sexual orientation, or any religion, social background, or race, I am delighted to be named on the list,” said O’Driscoll.
“I am personally inspired but not at all surprised by the tremendous talent on the Women in Engineering list,” said Patrick Clarke, Director of Network Operations at UK Power Networks and judge for the list. “Sadly, there are still plenty of people who will be surprised due to a mind-set which says engineering equals males not females. I took part as a judge because I wanted to be inspired.”
“Engineers have an impact on almost every area of our day to day lives,” said Elizabeth Oni-Iyiola, Development Director at Inclusive Boards. “Johanna and those featured [on the list] are role models who inspire those around them and demonstrate leadership and influence in the work that they do.”
