The University of Limerick (UL) collaborated with Dell EMC to host an event exploring the challenges of 'Changing Mindsets' in the working world. The event, supported by Johnson & Johnson, was attended by over 200 people from the Mid-West business and education community and focussed on encouraging more females in to science, technology, engineering and maths-related sectors, as part of Engineers Week 2017.
The event began with a series of speakers including Professor Paul McCutcheon, VP Academic & Registrar, UL and Fiona McCarthy, Vice President for Human Resources, Dell EMC.
Helen Shaw from Athena Media chaired the day with a series of breakout discussions. Each of the discussions explored different areas where changing mindsets and achieving greater gender balance need to be considered.
