To mark International Women in Engineering Day 2021, Inside Agri-Turf features three women who are currently fully engaged in technical and service roles with agricultural engineering companies.

There is an extract from a previous episode talking to Laura Bassnett, the winner of the Technician for 2021 Award, I discover how the runner up in those Award, Lauren Savage, prefers tractors to her previous job working with cars whilst Poppy Burrough, an engineering apprentice with JCB tells how prospective employers described their workshop as 'no place for a girl'.

Finally, for an industry perspective on whether there is real transformation underway for an industry commonly regarded as male dominated, I talk to Charlie Nicklin, the CEO of the Institution of Agricultural Engineers (IAgrE)
