International Women in Engineering Day 2018

The Women’s Engineering Society (WES) has launched International Women in Engineering Day 2018!

The theme this year is ‘Raising the Bar’, which gives you the opportunity to show the world how you are making positive change in what you do and how you do it. Whether professionally, through studying or perhaps by creating a more diverse workplace. WES want to hear from individuals and organisations making both large strides and small steps to raise awareness. They hope to see lots of people and organisations demonstrating how they will be #RaisingTheBar for #INWED18 through events, activities and social media.

As in previous years they are expecting a plethora of female talent to be showcased and to see a huge number of events for people to participate in worldwide.

This year is also the ‘Year of Engineering‘ and 100 years since (some) women were given the vote, so 2018 is particularly poignant and they are excited to see how this might influence your #INWED18 celebrations either on Saturday 23 June or in the weeks leading up to, or following the day.
