International Women in Engineering Day 2024

PUNCH is delighted to acknowledge and celebrate “International Women in Engineering Day” 23rd June 2024. Sadly, in the past Engineering has been a victim of stereotypical gender bias resulting in too few Women studying and practicing Engineering. We believe this is changing and can change further. But it is the responsibility of all those currently in Engineering to promote our wonderful profession to all potential Engineers regardless of gender or anything else.
At PUNCH we are very active in promoting Engineering as a career for women/girls. In the spirit of full disclosure, the percentage of female staff in PUNCH currently is 28% of which 22% are Engineers/Technicians. And within those numbers, our Dublin office for example, has 30% female Engineers/Technicians. While these numbers are significantly higher than the average in the Irish construction sector, they need to be higher and we are committed to doing that. Finally, we wish to acknowledge and thank the women in PUNCH for the wonderful contribution they all make to our company and we hope all enjoy and celebrate International Women in Engineering Day 2024.
