National Women in Engineering Day has been set up by the Women’s Engineering Society (WES) to celebrate its 95th anniversary.
The aim of the day is to celebrate the work that women do in engineering, and to showcase the great engineering careers that are available for girls.
On 23 June, WES wants to focus attention on opportunities for women in engineering, at a time when it has never been more important to address the engineering skills shortage. By encouraging girls into engineering careers we will not only be increasing diversity and inclusion – a business imperative – but also enabling us to fill the substantial future job opportunities that have been predicted in the engineering sector.
The idea behind National Women in Engineering Day (NWED) is to encourage groups to organise their own events in support of the day, linking them together for maximum impact through the use of the NWED logo, corresponding website, and supporting resources.
There is also a conference in London, “Women in Engineering: The Challenge” on 23 June. For further details please follow the link below.
