International Women in Engineering Day

On Friday 23 June we at NSIRC will be joining the celebrations for International Women in Engineering Day (INWED).

This year the Tipper Group will be hosting an open invitation networking breakfast, where beside the plentiful pastries, coffees and teas, NSIRC students will have the opportunity to network with members and guests from every area of the Granta site. All are welcome; that means gents as well.

Time: 9:30am – 10:30
Place: The Street, TWI

Set up in 2014 by the Women’s Engineering Society (WES) to celebrate its 95th anniversary, this national, and now international, awareness day focuses attention on the amazing careers in engineering and technical roles, especially for girls and young women, and celebrates the achievements of women engineers.

INWED is a fun and inspiring way for schools, colleges and universities to encourage students to take up engineering careers.

It will feature hundreds of exciting events, from talks, tours, open days and debates to competitions, networking events, site visits, videos and campaigns –more than 550 in 2016. Through partnership with The Daily Telegraph, INWED will also announce the ‘Top 50 Women in Engineering under 35’ on 23 June – this year the list focuses on the rising female stars across all engineering sectors.

Working in partnership with many of the engineering world’s globally recognised names, INWED seeks to foster a spirit of cooperation, collaboration and enthusiasm. Its aim is to celebrate the role of women in engineering, to highlight positive role models, and to inspire future and current generations to achieve their potential.
