Today is National Women in Engineering Day! #INWED17 #RaisingProfiles @WES1919

Adafruit national women engineering day blog

Today is National Women in Engineering day! We’ll be featuring women in engineering throughout the day on the Adafruit blog to celebrate. You can see today’s posts here. We hope you join in this year’s celebration with #INWED17 (Facebook, G+, Instagram, Twitter) and #RaisingProfiles (Facebook, G+, Instagram, Twitter ).

From inwed.org.uk:

National Women in Engineering Day was set up by the Women’s Engineering Society (WES) to celebrate its 95th anniversary.

On 23 June 2014 WES wanted 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. In 2017, the scope of the day increased and the decision was made to change the name to International Women in Engineering Day.

The idea behind International 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 INWED logo, corresponding website, and supporting resources.
