Jo da Silva: still a star

Ove Arup engineer Jo da Silva has won first place in the science and technology category of the Cosmopolitan Women of Achievement awards, beating nine other shortlisted women to the £500 prize. Da Silva was nominated by the ICE who praised the 31 year-old engineer 'for her leadership and achievements within the civil engineering profession and her service to the world community'. Da Silva has been heavily involved in Registered Engineers for Disaster Relief, taking the chair in 1996, and last year starred in a Department of Trade and Industry campaign promoting careers for women in engineering and science (NCE 19 November).
