Real Life Pocket Sally


Cate Fennell, an undergraduate studying Bachelor of Engineering majoring in Civil, is pushing for change when it comes to gender equality in the workplace.

After trying several different careers, she was lured into the Mining boom and worked as a confined space sentry where she was reminded of her passion for technical fields. After facing challenges presented through stereotypes in technical apprenticeships she stumbled upon a pathway entry program to Engineering, and has since transferred to the Bachelor of Civil Engineering (HONS) at the University of Southern Queensland, as supported by Parkes Shire Council.
