About the book
Rules of the Game explores the world of engineering, resources and construction from the perspectives of over 50 women and men who work in these industries. Their comments and stories have been collected anonymously to provide the reader with an unfiltered view of the realities faced by women in these industries. Drawing on a wealth of academic research and qualitative reports, Rules of the Game succinctly delivers recommendations on how to overcome the challenges and make the most of the advantages.
The Rules of the Game book and merchandise will be available for signing and purchase on the night via cash or credit card.
There will be a selection of grazing dishes on the evening as well as a complimentary drink on arrival. Please advise of dietary requirements by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
