The response to our international awareness campaign has been fantastic with the theme this year of #RaisingTheBar really hitting a chord with a wide and global audience - we need a step change.
We are excited to see so many events planned not just around the UK but also internationally including Panama, Canada and Pakistan.
On behalf of WES, I wish you all good luck with your celebrations and events and please send us photos to share far and wide!
Kirsten Bodley, CEO, WES
Join our Thunderclap campaign
On 23 June at 12noon we have a scheduled tweet via our Thunderclapcampaign aimed at getting INWED noticed on social media and to help us with 'raising the bar' for gender parity in engineering and to acknowledge and celebrate women in engineering. Please join our thunderclap campaign so that we can gain as much visibility for this international awareness campaign as possible!
It's not too late to make plans to celebrate on or around 23 June. For ideas, tips and useful information, download the #INWED18 Resource Pack.
This year, International Women in Engineering Day takes place on a Saturday, and so a number of activities have been scheduled by participants to take place this week, and in fact across the whole of June itself all across the globe.
This is great for increasing awareness of the great work female engineers are doing across the globe, but also serves a purpose to show that celebration of these achievements and raising awareness of the wealth of career opportunities in engineering!
Take a look at our 2018 Events page to see our interactive map and details of all events that have been registered with us.
