Industry must work to get more women into engineering

The Northern Ireland economy must attract more women into careers in engineering and technology, according to the employment minister. 

Mencurrently outnumber women three to one in the sector and employers are facing serious skills shortages which impact on productivity and competitiveness.

Employment and Learning Minister Stephen Farry says that much work still needs to be done to promote gender diversity within these careers and industries.
