Women in Engineering Grant 2023

Get It Made are well aware of the gender imbalance that exists within the UK manufacturing industry. Recent data suggest that female employees account for just 14.5% of the total UK manufacturing workforce, with an even smaller percentage accounting for female-led enterprises. As such, this grant aims to support female-led engineering organisations, both financially and in offering our expertise, as grant winners will work closely with Get It Made’s knowledgeable engineers to accelerate the design and development of their ideas.

With the help of this grant, Get It Made hopes to help businesses reach its true potential, and simultaneously help remove barriers facing future generations of women hoping to enter UK engineering.

Aiza, Get it Made Project Manager, says this about the grant:

“From my personal experience, the more women you see within the industry, the more I hope it encourages and inspires other women to take the lead and not be intimidated. Entering a male-dominated industry has not taken away from my own femininity, but has actually made me braver and stronger.”
