International Women in Engineering Day (INWED)
Set up in 2014 by FISITA Strategic Partner the Women’s Engineering Society (WES), INWED was established to raise awareness of the fantastic career opportunities in engineering and to celebrate the achievements of women engineers.
To celebrate INWED17 we published a special edition of Inside Track featuring exclusive articles written by female engineers and a feature in our YFIA newsletter focusing on female students views on engineering. You can read the articles here.
A key subtheme for INWED17 is ‘men as allies’. While the key aim of the initiative is to celebrate women in engineering, WES believes that to achieve real diversity and equality, we must strive to remove all barriers. Watch the short video below of FISITA CEO, Chris Mason explaining how FISITA supports diversity and the importance of women in engineering.
