National Women in Engineering Day – 23 June 2014 – a day dedicated to raising the profile and celebrating the achievements of women in engineering. Get involved and help create as many events and opportunities as possible to spread the word that engineering offers as many opportunites for women as men. Simply organise an event on or around this day.
National Women in Engineering Day has been set up by the Women’s Engineering Society (WES) to celebrate its 95th anniversary. On 23 June 2014 WES wants to focus attention on the great 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 enabling us to fill the substantial future job opportunities that have been predicted in this sector.
The idea behind National Women in Engineering Day is to encourage all groups (Governmental, educational, corporate, Professional Engineering Institutions, individuals and other organisations) to organise their own events in support of the day, and link them together for maximum impact through the use of the NWED logo, corresponding website, and supporting resources.
