Safe Conditions

Safe working conditions and environment

The under-representation of women in engineering creates an environment where women are the minority and often do not get the support they need from their managers or colleagues. the are numerous explanations that are offered for this discrepancy, including a lack of mentorship for women in the field; reasons that lower self-confidence amongst female engineers; and the demands of maintaining a work-life balance. The top reasons women elect not to work in engineering-related jobs are:  

  • Faced discrimination in recruitment, hiring, and promotion (39%)  

  • More difficult to balance work/family in engineering, and jobs (33%)  Most women face harassment and discrimination in companies. this makes it hard for them to work and to be productive. 

With the help of the organization and government, the companies will be willing to adhere to policies that will be favorable to women in technical and Engineering fields.
