On 23 June, women engineers across the UK will celebrate the 2nd annual National Women in Engineering Day (NWED) 23 June 2015. With the extremely low percentage of women engineers in the UK, less than 10%, NWED provides a great opportunity to encourage more girls to consider engineering as a career.
Last year, over 250 schools and 100 organisations took part, and this year we want to expand on that success and establish NWED as a bigger and better day! Show your support for gender equality and diversity in engineering this NWED by hosting your own engineering-related event and tweeting your support with the hashtag #nwed.
IOM3 will be hosting its own event again in 2015, this time in Manchester.
