Please tell us about yourself and your role at Siemens
As a graduate who has recently joined Siemens, we spend two years working across different parts of the business. Working specifically in Building Technologies, my first rotation is in the Building Performance and Sustainability department where I am currently the only female. However, it does not feel like it because everyone has instantly made me feel part of the team and continue to treat me the same as they do each other. If their example is the same throughout Siemens, then I am very proud to be part of this wonderful company.
What’s the biggest challenge you’ve came across since starting the graduate programme?
Being a female engineer can often be a huge challenge because you have to work twice as hard to prove you are just as competent as your colleagues. However, at Siemens, it’s not like that. I’ve witnessed them treat and nurture all their graduates equally, regardless of who you are and where you have come from, and I believe that’s how it should be.
