The International Women in Engineering Day takes place today, June 23rd, and continues to lead the way to provide female engineers with a voice heard around the world.
With 16.5% of engineers now being women, the annual INWED event provides female engineers with an opportunity to shine in an industry where they are underrepresented. This one-of-a-kind event plays a pivotal role in not just showcasing talent but also in encouraging and inspiring the next generation of female engineers.
Since its inception INWED has grown its reach to give women engineers around the world a unique platform on which to share their collective voice.
For 2022, INWED is looking at inventors and innovators, profiling the best, brightest and bravest women in engineering who are striving to be part of the solution, helping to build a brighter future for all.
INWED 2022 is looking towards the future, focusing on those who will change the industry for the better. In part, the idea for the ninth version of the event is to increase engagement and awareness so that everyone can start thinking about the impact the industry is having on the planet and how we can encourage individuals and organisations to think about being more sustainable moving forward.
We chose the theme innovation to spark a conversation around diversity. To bring about true innovation there needs to be a workforce that genuinely reflects the diverse nature of engineering and the people it benefits.’
One of the purposes of the event is to drive the topic of diversity and inclusion, and to spark discussions at an Executive Level. The question of ‘How can I ensure my workplace is as diverse as possible?’ Is one that INWED continually helps to answer. It’s an event for female engineers as well as those who wish to strive and ensure their organisation is doing everything possible to be fair and open to all.
INWED this year is about celebrating the amazing work that women engineers around the world are doing to support lives and livelihoods every day.
We’re profiling the best, brightest and bravest women in engineering, the inventors and innovators who dare to be part of the solution and are helping to build a brighter future.
