Georgia Lilley shortlisted for STEM Ambassador of the Year in the ICE London Award

We are delighted that Georgia Lilley, a Design Engineer Apprentice, has been shortlisted for STEM Ambassador of the Year in the upcoming Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE) London Awards.

The awards celebrate the collective and individual achievements of civil engineers and recognises excellence, innovation and ingenuity in London. The shortlist represents the city’s top infrastructure projects and members who have contributed greatly to the way we deliver infrastructure and its benefits to the local community.

The ‘ICE London STEM Ambassador of the Year award recognises an individual who has shown outstanding commitment to civil engineering by giving their time to inspire the next generation of civil engineers on behalf of ICE London.

Passionate about inspiring the next generation of civil engineers and raising the profile of careers in this exciting field, Georgia has participated in a wide range of STEM engagement activities in the last year including speaking engagements, panel debates and career fairs at schools, colleges and universities.

She has inspired colleagues and peers to become ICE STEM Ambassadors to help ICE improve its education outreach, as well as working with teachers and technicians to provide information about opportunities within STEM careers.

Georgia participated in the New Scientist Live Festival both as a speaker and a panellist, and her career features as case study for Success at Schools’ Physics Study Guide – a guide designed to help both those currently considering their career path and teachers who tutor the subject.

The winners in the regional award will go onto compete in the National ICE Awards 2020.

We are keeping our fingers crossed for Georgia!

The arrangements for the Awards Ceremony are yet to be confirmed. Prior to COVID-19, it was due take place at ICE headquarters on 21 May.
