Energy champion celebrates top 50 accolade


SEMLEP’s energy champion is a winner in the Top 50 Women in Engineering. 

Dr Kerry Mashford OBE has been announced as a winner, in the Top 50 Women in Engineering: sustainability awards.

Now in its fifth year, the 2020 WE50 celebrates women who have made a significant contribution within sustainability. Winning nominees were required to provide evidence of their successful support of UNESCO’s Sustainable Development Goals or the Net Zero Carbon Programme.

She said: “I am really pleased that WES chose sustainability as its focus for this year’s awards.  The need for action is urgent and engineers have a huge contribution to make as we strive to create a better world.

“I’m even more delighted to have been selected for the WE50 award this year. For many years, long before sustainability was a recognised topic, I’ve been using my engineering knowledge and systems engineering skills to make more sustainable products, places, processes, systems and value chains.”
