The WiP awards are organised by the Association of Women in Property, the WiP Student Awards look to recognise the most talented students on built environment courses.
Following a nomination from her peers at Surrey University, Joanna competed alongside 21 other regional finalists spread across Surrey and the South Coast. Ultimately, Joanna was awarded the trophy along with a cash prize.
Speaking about her recent win, Joanna said: “I’m delighted to be one of the three South East winners and am very grateful to the Civil Engineering Department at Surrey. Participating in the WiP Student Awards process has not only provided a valuable insight into the property and construction industry but also the opportunity to engage with senior, motivational role models. This has been a brilliant experience.”
Tony Gee’s HR Manager Gareth Drought added: “I’m not surprised that such a dedicated and passionate young civil engineer such as Jo would win this award, she is a fantastic role model to all of her fellow students and to women in engineering.
We look forward to Jo completing her summer placement with us this year and discussing her very bright future with us.”
Subsequently, Joanna has been entered into the WiP National Student Awards where she will line up against 13 winners from each respective region. The winner of the National Student Award will be announced on the 20th September at Claridge’s in London.
