By Priyani de Silva-Currie posted 29 days ago


International Women in Engineering Day celebrates the talent of all women in engineering fields

International Women in Engineering Day (INWED) provides a clear call to women to shape the world. This years’ theme is ENHANCED BY ENGINEERING!

International Women in Engineering Day (INWED) is celebrated annually on June 23rd to honour the outstanding achievements of women engineers and to encourage more girls and women to pursue careers in engineering.

The day highlights the contributions of women to the engineering field and promotes gender diversity in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics).

Engineering shapes the world and helps make our planet a better, safer, more innovative and exciting place to be.  Think of the women you can empower now to be part of shaping our future!

Encouraging girls into engineering careers

INWED focuses attention on the many opportunities for women in engineering, at a time when it has never been more important to address the engineering skills shortage.

It is critical to encourage girls and women to consider engineering careers and to help fill the substantial future job opportunities predicted for the engineering sector.

A global celebration of women in engineering

Launched initially in the UK by the Women's Engineering Society (WES) as a national initiative, INWED has grown year by year, and has since achieved a global reach and UNESCO patronage. 

Every year, hundreds of INWED activities span countries around the world like the USA, UK, Canada, New Zealand, Australia, Sierra Leone, Hong Kong, Canada, Rwanda, Panama Norway and many more. 

IFME is proud to be a supporter of International Women in Engineering Day 2024 and support our women to grow and prosper in engineering fields all around the world.
