Spokeswomen at Siemens Healthineers took time out of their busy schedules to talk about their careers, the current landscape of women in engineering and inspiring the next generation.
Dr Annette Crowley-Luke, Managing Director of Siemens Healthineers Llanberis
Siemens Healthineers is a great company to work for, I would definitely recommend it as an employer of choice. Aim high, work hard and follow your aspirations.
There have been a few role models that have inspired me throughout my career, the first: my PhD supervisor who never gave up despite the many life challenges thrown at her. Second, a work friend and colleague who reassured me that you can have a family alongside your career, and survive! And a manager who believed in me, even when I wasn’t sure myself.
Outside of work I enjoy walking our dog and attending exercise classes. My kids sporting activities, mainly sailing, means I’m a constant taxi - so there's not much time for anything else! If I could do anything though, I'd like to get back into horse-riding and golf. I used to do both when I had free time and really enjoyed them.
Eva Abdul-Malak, Business & Process Excellence Manager
Siemens Healthineers’ mission resonates with me on a human level. No matter what your background is within STEM, we can all align to bring our knowledge and expertise together, helping to shape the future of healthcare.
I am inspired by many people and I always try to learn from others, whether we meet face to face or through books by studying how they became successful in their lives. This helps me broaden my mindset and to reflect upon how I can improve myself. One example of a role model for me would be my father whose drive, courage and dedication influenced me to go after my dreams and goals without limiting my beliefs.
Outside of work, I love researching and reading about personal development. One of my favourite books is ‘The Magic of Thinking Big’. I also enjoy dancing, yoga and meditation, travelling and having experiences by exploring different cultures. If there were no limitations on time and money, I would definitely travel more!
