Arup has celebrated the fifth year of our partnership with the Singapore Committee for UN Women with a recent Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) event at our Singapore office. This partnership reinforces our continuing efforts towards a culture of greater gender diversity and inclusion.
Georgette Tan, President, Singapore Committee for UN Women said the Committee is delighted that the partnership with Arup has been going well.
“Over the last five years, the Girls2Pioneers programme has influenced and encouraged many young women to pursue a career in STEM industries. We have focused on STEM as we see this as crucial to building the pipeline for young women to enter and build successful careers in STEM industries,” Ms Tan said.
Our Singapore office has hosted four STEM events for young people this year, most recently introducing Primary 5 students from CHIJ Our Lady Queen of Peace to Arup’s business and the everyday lives of our designers, planners, engineers and consultants.
