“Engineering Diversity” | Ellen Simmons | TEDxUniversityofGlasgow

“Engineering Diversity” | Ellen Simmons | TEDxUniversityofGlasgow

This talk is about the importance of diversity in STEM both at university and in the workplace. Through her own experience, Ellen talks about the way diversity betters our lives and highlights it with examples from the discipline of engineering. Despite her avid ability to construct IKEA furniture from a young age, Ellen did not know what an engineer was until she decided to go to university. Biomedical Engineering was an ideal career choice, and Ellen’s passion for her field motivated her to ensure other young girls would be aware of the options available for them across the engineering discipline.
