National Women in Engineering Day
23 June 2016 marked the National Women in Engineering Day, aiming to support, inspire, celebrate and raise the profile of women in engineering.
It is also an opportunity to draw attention to the amazing careers in engineering for girls and young people. The event is being organised by the Women's Engineering Society and is very much supported by the Engineering Department of Lancaster University.
The subtheme for the day is Raising Profiles and nationally 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. A number of other campaigns and competitions are running on that day too, and full details can be found at www.nwed.org.uk.
Please show your support for the day by using the hashtag #NWED2016.
