Celebrate National Women in Engineering Day (NWED)
June 20, 2016
National Women in Engineering Day (NWED) was set up by the Women’s Engineering Society (WES).
NWED focuses 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, not only does society increase diversity and inclusion - a business imperative - but it enables an opportunity to fill the substantial future job opportunities that have been predicted in the engineering 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.
