National Women in Engineering Day, 23 June 2016


National Women in Engineering Day is taking place again on 23 June 2016 and this is your chance to support, inspire, celebrate and raise the profile of your amazing female engineers. It is also your opportunity to draw attention to the amazing careers in engineering for girls and young people.

The 2016 Resource Pack is available for you to download from the website or receive by post from and we hope to be having a big social media presence gain through the hashtag #NWED2016. The subtheme for the day is Raising Profiles and the event will be accompanied by the publication of a list of 50 Influential Women in Engineering, which is being coordinated by The Daily Telegraph. Join our mailing list to be kept informed of what’s going on, and don’t forget to start planning your own celebrations. And do keep us informed. #NWED2016 coordinated by the Women’s Engineering Society. Further information here.
