Jacinta Caden and Lisa-Jayne Cook named in prestigious annual list
Two leading lights in the cooling industry have been named in the annual Top 50 Women in Engineering list. Lisa-Jayne Cook, now of J&E Hall but nominated while at Aqua Temperature Control Solutions and Jacinta Caden of Critical Project Services, have both been named in the prestigious list, compiled by the Women’s Engineering Society (WES),
Ms Caden, who joined CPS from Integral, is one of the judges for the RAC and IOR National Student of the Year and both women are active members of the IOR’s Women in RACHP group.
The Top 50 Women in Engineering: Current and Former Apprentices (WE50) was published to coincide with International Women in Engineering Day 2019. Now in its fourth year, the WES said the WE50 continues to showcase the extensive female talent across the sector, this year focusing on women currently serving as apprentices or those who have previously undertaken an apprenticeship.
The WES said the 2019 awards, selected by an independent judging panel attracted a large number of high-quality nominations from a broad range of industries.
Dawn Childs, WES President said: “Since the inception of the Top 50 Women in Engineering list in 2016, WES has been privileged to be able to identify, and thus help showcase, some amazing women in engineering. Every year a different focus is chosen to ensure that we can shine a light on female engineers at different stages of their career and who have come to engineering through many different paths. Apprenticeships remain one of the key routes for technical education and subsequently, to qualifying as an engineer. Consequently, we have looked at current and former apprentices in the WE50 list this year. The breadth and depth of roles and industries covered by the entries was simply breathtaking and the achievements of the individual entrants were stunning – we have definitely found another truly inspirational list of female engineers.”
