#INWED18 News: May
One month to go until #INWED18
Welcome to the fifth #INWED18 newsletter 

There is now exactly one month go until International Women in Engineering Day 2018!

In the past month the Year of Engineering has given INWED18 support through in their newsletter and we have had direct communications with the Department for Transport and the Mayor of London himself, Sadiq Khan both supporting INWED! This is fantastic for the increased awareness of #INWED18 and women in engineering!

The interest across the globe for this campaign is ever-growing, with international events being registered from as far as  Canada, Nepal and Cameroon! Spread the word about #INWED18 and help us with #RaisingTheBar!
