To mark International Women in Engineering Day Sunday 23 Junethe AA is celebrating the patrol women who rescue broken-down drivers across the country every day. The company is celebrating the work of its female patrols and technicians and seeking to break down perceived barriers to entry, having partnered with STEM Women to reach more women with Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics backgrounds.
We have chosen to partner with STEM Women to raise awareness of career opportunities for women in the AA Patrol force, and have found a promising level of early interest and exposure. We recently welcomed two new female apprentices on board as part of the next generation of AA technicians, and look forward to receiving future applications from candidates of all backgrounds.
According to those already in the industry, the ly low level of women ing may be due to subconscious biases outside of organisations, rather than within them. Just knowing there are women on the patrol force already may be enough to encourage more to apply. It is not uncommon for female patrols already successfully established within the field to challenge preconceptions from the people they go to help - as Alexandra Phillips, who has been a Battery Assist Technician with the AA for eight years, explains.
Some are genuinely concerned for my safety, asking if my husband lets me do this role firstly, assuming I have one is a mistake. The issue goes beyond breaking down stereotypes to addressing a lack of public facilities, as both Emma and Alex say finding ladies toilets can be a daily challenge.
More toilets for women! And as more women the industry, they continue to break new ground and pave the way for a different future.
