Do you know someone working in the engineering sector who could make the 2018 Top 50 Women in Engineering List?
If so, then today is the last day for nominations, you have until midnight tonight!
The Women's Engineers Society (WES) will once again be celebrating International Women in Engineering (INWED18) on the 23rd June 2018. The organisation encourages diversity in engineering. The event aims to boost female uptake of engineering roles and careers by celebrating the notable achievements made by women in the sector.
In partnership with WES and the Telegraph, the INWED has become an annual event. This year, the WE50 will be focusing on untapped talent pools of returners and transfers in the UK. These are the women who've returned to work after a career break or have fallen into engineering from another sector or switched between different areas.
This fantastic campaign raises global awareness in an industry that has huge discrepancies between the number of men vs. the number of women, currently employed as an engineer. With this year being marked as the Year of the engineer, young people have been exposed to engineering workshops and organisations up and down the country in a bid to shake up peoples' ideas about engineering. The WES wants to raise the profile of Women in the sector
