Launch Day

The Molly Fergusson Initiative is officially launching!

We would like to introduce you to the Molly Fergusson Initiative within the School of Engineering.

The Initiative involves all women and their allies in the School, working to support them. The Initiative ultimately hopes to encourage more female school leavers to study engineering, and more of our female graduates to remain in engineering professions. The Initiative has been a part of the School for a little while, however we are having an official launch!

The launch will be a whole day of events concluding with an award show "The Mollys" (School of Engineering Oscars).
