Women at Atkins

Engineering change for women at Atkins, member of the SNC-Lavalin group

For women looking for opportunities in design, engineering and project management, there has never been a better time to join Atkins. Our overall vision is to see more women in senior roles. We are making our organisation a better place to work, so that everyone can excel professionally and personally. We’re also investing in our female employees at all career stages. As a result Atkins is attracting and retaining more women, and more female employees are being promoted.

Women’s Development Programme (WDP)

Our elective three-month UK-wide programme supports women both within the business and throughout our sector. Female employees who have taken part have experienced real and lasting career changes:

95% report a more proactive approach to career progression
“I completed the WDP a couple of years ago – it still is the course that I remember and I recommend it to everyone who I speak to at Atkins. Since completing the training, I have gained two promotions and feel like I have finally moved on with my career.”

Over 90% feel they have improved their communication skills

50% take on more responsibility before the end of the programme
“In the 2 years since attending the course I have gone from Grade 11 to Grade 13, I have presented at an industry conference and have been nominated for an award!”

20% progress to take on new roles by the end of the programme

99% believe it will contribute to business improvements within the organisation
“Since attending the programme, my career has gone from strength to strength – highlights this year include a nine-week trip around the Atkins world… and yesterday I achieved Grade 15!”

100% stated that the programme had met or exceeded their expectations.

Women's Professional Networks (WPNs)

These friendly and informal forums encourage a gender-balanced and inclusive workplace. WPN meetings are held across our offices and have featured presentations on key issues around diversity and inclusion, as well as relevant book reviews and world café events. These networks are also a great space for sharing tips and guidance on working at the business, from working with clients to internal and external networking.

Meet some of our inspiring women and read their stories, here on their blog pages.
