Reshaping the future of engineering to make it more inclusive for everyone

Lisa Doyle Banner

In celebration of International Women in Engineering Day, we were thrilled to have the chance to engage in insightful conversations with some of our talented women engineers at Kent.

Lisa Doyle, Chief Technical Safety Engineer and Operations Group Lead for Kent Consulting in the UK shared with us her experiences as an engineer, the challenges she has faced, and her thoughts on how to make the industry more inclusive and safer for all.

What does this year's ‘Make Safety Seen’ theme mean to you as an engineer?
From safety systems to personal equipment, amongst other crucial requirements for working on-site as engineers, these are designed based on the body dimensions and strength of a typical man – overlooking the potential for much smaller people, including women, to need to be able to use these in order to do their job safely. Highlighting issues, like the need for women-specific PPE, should encourage companies to do all they can to make working on site for all engineers safer and more comfortable – and ultimately make engineering more appealing as a career.
What is your view about the role of women as drivers of change in energy transition?
The same as it is for men as drivers of change. I think everyone needs to listen carefully to ideas being put forward and critically analyse the benefits of different options. Those who drive change need to be strong decision-makers who understand where the biggest impact can be made and not be pressured into action by those with vested interests.  This is about humans driving the change the industry requires, without ulterior motives, and regardless of gender.
