STRANG'S WORK FROM HOME PLAYLIST

We asked five of our coworkers what they’ve been listening to during WFH, and then turned it into a guessing game for all staff. Certain coworkers were easier to guess than others!

CELEBRATING WOMEN IN ENGINEERING

Melissa, Gwen and Katie are vital team members, and we are so thankful for all of their hard work at Strang and the field of engineering! International Women in Engineering Day (#INWED20) took place on 23 June 2020. We can’t wait to celebrate again next year!
