Did you support International Women in Engineering Day?

Taking place annually on 23 June, International Women in Engineering Day (INWED) celebrates the achievements of outstanding women engineers, and aims to inspire a new generation of females entering the profession.

9 per cent is not enough

With only 9 percent of the UK engineering workforce female, there's still a very long way to go for closing the gender gap in an industry which is still considerably male-dominated.

Men as strong allies

The Women in Engineering Society (WES) is encouraging a theme of #MenAsAllies that focuses on tangible actions that men can take to bring about change in the workplace for their female work colleagues, daughters and partners.

Excellent INWED activity

Many companies including AECOM, GKN, Schneider Electric, University of SheffieldRio TintoAmazon, Diageo and more are celebrating International Women in Engineering Day via a range of exciting events, workshops, live broadcasts and social media campaigns.
