Georgia V. Thompson
I am a philonoist.
An approachable strategic visionary that empowers and engages teams to successfully deliver projects in a dynamic and challenging environment. Currently a design delivery manager at Bam Nuttall. I manage a multi-million, multi-disipline structures portfolio on behalf of Network Rail. This involves providing integrated engineering management and technical assessments of bridge reconstructions and refurbishments, as well as managing teams of designers delivering to budget, quality and programme. Through my role of innovation lead for Rail South, I facilitate and encourage the use of new material, products and construction methods to provide improved efficiencies to our client and encourage sustainable practices.
I co-founded a social enterprise called Dversty to improve the inclusion of diverse groups in engineering and technology industries. Since launching in 2019, we have provided panel-style events, mentorships schemes, Employee Resource Groups Webinars and a most recently a book club: racism edition.
I am incredibly passionate about improving diversity in Engineering and the pathways for young people. Visiting schools, providing presentations/webinars and mentoring is a key part of who I am. I have been a part of campaigns with Institute of Physics, Institution of Civil Engineers, WISE, Women’s Engineering Society and the Open Data Institute.
