"It is an honour to be presenting the IET YWE Awards. To see these young women, not only deciding to take on a traditionally male dominated career - with all the challenges that comes with that - but to thrive and succeed needs to be celebrated.

"In a society obsessed with celebrity, where what a woman wears is talked about more than her mind, it is great to see that hard working, bright young women are getting the public recognition they deserve."
