Mimi Nwosu receives WLA 'Rising Star' in STEM award

Congratulations to Mimi Nwosu who has received the Women Leaders Association (WLA) ‘Rising Star in STEM’ (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) Award.

Congratulations to Mimi Nwosu, who was crowned ‘Rising Star in STEM’ by the Women Leaders Association (WLA). Mimi is a civil engineer, currently working as an Assistant Materials Engineer on our Align HS2 Joint Venture.

Mimi’s award was presented virtually at the WLA’s International Women’s Day Conference on Friday 5th March. The WLA aims to cultivate authentic, diverse and inclusive female leadership through community and a range of mentorship and collaborative opportunities.

Outside of her work, Mimi is a passionate advocate for STEM, and produces a lot of inspiring content around the subjects of STEM, being an engineer, and working in construction. Her viral video showing the myths vs realities of being an engineer is just one example of Mimi’s commitment to breaking barriers and encouraging more women to embark on a career in STEM.

I am super honoured and grateful to be the recipient of this award! I would like to thank the WLA and the judges for choosing me as their winner and for hosting an inspirational conference last week. Also thanks to Sir Robert McAlpine for presenting me with opportunities to share my passion for advocacy and civil engineering. And finally, to my manager, John McEvoy, for enhancing my learning experiences everyday and providing me with the knowledge, support and guidance in becoming a commendable engineer.
