Nusrat Ghani MP reflects on the successes of the year of engineering and looks at how the momentum generated by the campaign can be carried into 2019
Last January I became the first female Muslim minister to speak at the House of Commons dispatch box. I hope this inspired other young women from minority backgrounds to aim high in careers where they might not currently feel represented.
Since then I have had the honour of leading a campaign that has strived to show young people from different backgrounds what they could achieve in engineering. The Year of Engineering has united the ambitions of the industry as a whole, making an impact that we could not have imagined at the start of the year.
