It has been announced today that Naomi Connell, VolkerWessels UK's chief finance officer has been named as one of the top 100 Most Influential Women in the Engineering Sector.

Inclusive Boards’ Development Director Elizabeth Oni-Iyiola said: “Engineers have an impact on almost every area of our day to day lives. Naomi and those featured today are role models who inspire those around them and demonstrate leadership and influence in the work that they do.”

 

Patrick Clarke, Director of Network Operations at UK Power Networks and judge for the list said: “I am personally inspired but not at all surprised by the tremendous talent on the Women in Engineering list. Sadly there are still plenty of people who will be surprised due to a mind-set which say engineering equals males not females. I took part as a judge because I wanted to be inspired.”

Naomi Connell said: “It is an honour to be named on this list, but we must recognise that there is still work to be done to drive forward the spirit of total inclusivity in our sector. At VolkerWessels UK, we understand that a diverse workforce is key to the future of our business and we are totally committed to ensuring that we offer an inclusive environment for our teams and for all those we work with.”
