Arcadis’ Women in Engineering Scholarship awarded to Jenny Hou

Sydney, Australia - Arcadis today congratulated Jenny Hou on receiving Arcadis’ Women in Engineering scholarship in partnership with the University of NSW. The scholarship program will provide financial support to Jenny as she completes her engineering studies with the university.

Arcadis congratulated Jenny Hou on receiving Arcadis’ Women in Engineering scholarship in partnership with the University of NSW.

Greg Steele, CEO Australia, Arcadis said: “Congratulations Jenny Hou on receiving the scholarship. Arcadis is very pleased to offer the three-year scholarship as a practical way to support and encourage more women to consider engineering. It is also pleasing to see a growing number of women interested in pursuing engineering.” 

The Women in Engineering Scholarship is one part of a program where Arcadis is actively supporting changes to drive stronger diversity in the engineering sector. Arcadis is a signatory and participant in the industry-wide Male Champions of Change initiative, where it publicly reports on targets and the percentage of women in senior leadership positions. 

UNSW note that traditionally women have been under-represented in engineering. However, more companies and universities are recognizing the importance of a balanced approach to challenges and the value of diversity. UNSW Engineering has above-average female enrolments at 23% (the national average is closer to 17%) and has set a goal of boosting female enrolments to 30% by 2020.
