Top 50 Women in Engineering award for CIOB member
Dr Phebe Mann has been selected as one of the winners of Top 50 Women in Engineering 2018 awards. Mann is an outstanding engineer, an innovative teacher and a potent role model for women in STEM.
The WE50 campaign aims to raise awareness of the skills shortage facing the industry and the huge discrepancy between the number of men vs. women currently in engineering professions, to change perceptions and encourage young women to consider engineering as a viable and rewarding career.
Mann is the first and only woman to hold seven professional qualifications concurrently in the UK (including MCIOB) as well as being a qualified construction and engineering lawyer and holds a string of degrees.
She is a STEM Ambassador, Talent2030 Hero, and Queen’s Young Leader’s mentor; she works tirelessly to encourage girls to pursue engineering careers.
Mann is also the first female chair of the Chartered Institute of Building in Leicester.
She currently works as associate professor in highway and transportation at the University of East London.
