Women engineers urged to ‘shape the world’
Today (23 June) is International Women in Engineering Day (INWED), an international awareness campaign to raise the profile of women in engineering and focus attention on the career opportunities available to women in the industry. This year’s theme for the campaign is #ShapeTheWorld.
Now in its seventh year, INWED’s global reach has seen countries including UK, Panama, Canada, Rwanda, Hong Kong, New Zealand and Pakistan participate in the campaign.
In a statement, Elizabeth Donnelly, CEO of the Women’s Engineering Society said, “INWED20 is an amazing campaign that recognises the careers available to women in engineering. The 2020 theme ties in with the challenges facing us in an uncertain future and invites engineers to share how they are tackling such topics as the climate emergency.”
