Enhanced By Engineering – Elodie Arsicaud

Elodie Arsicaud

The theme for this year’s International Women in Engineering Day is #EnhancedByEngineering, which celebrates the amazing impact that women engineers have made, both throughout history and those today who are building a brighter future.

In our final spotlight of the week, we celebrate Elodie Arsicaud, a Principal Highway Engineer at Waterman Aspen who founded the Waterman Aspen Women’s Network and is passionate about building women up, and helping them to connect with a wider network.

“INWED is important to me because I’m passionate about diversity and leading inclusive teams. When I am in the room, I make sure everyone has the opportunity to collaborate, be valued and be heard. Celebrating women in engineering in crucial for fostering the innovation that comes from diverse perspectives.”

Elodie has become a champion for women at Waterman Aspen. She first pitched the idea for the Women’s Network to address the gender imbalance within our industry, and to help women feel supported and guided through their career. She hosted the inaugural meeting on International Women’s Day in 2023, focusing on the theme of ‘Make Safety Seen”. Leading up to the meeting, Elodie also joined the first episode of The Engineer Exchange Podcast to discuss the lack of access to women’s PPE and the issues women may face on site. The Women’s Network at Waterman Aspen has continued to go from strength-to-strength, discussing important topics including unconscious bias, imposter syndrome along with peer support and mentoring.

Elodie’s dedication didn’t stop there. She secured funding for external speakers, Dr Arpinder Bansi and Suzy Charman, to deliver insightful webinars to our colleagues and many across the Midlands Highway Alliance Framework. Beyond Waterman Aspen, Elodie actively participates in industry events like WSP’s International Women’s Day session and events hosted by Women in Transport. Her unwavering drive and passion exemplify Waterman Aspen’s core values. She was also recently recognised at the CIHT West Midlands Women’s Achievement Celebration.
