National Women in Engineering Day is celebrated on the 23rd of June with the purpose of raising the profile of women in Engineering.
To celebrate this, the School of Engineering hosted the 4th annual University of Edinburgh Women in STEMM Workshop.
Many other events were going on across the country and the twitter hastag #nwed was used during the day to highlight them. Some of the ones we noticed were:
- Naomi Mitchison, an alumni of Edinburgh and current IET Young Woman Engineer of the Year, was involved at events at Selex ES where Prince Charles met female engineers of the future.
- NWED released a video entitled Pushing Boundaries - Women in Engineering.
- s1jobs.com interviewed 3 female engineers about their careers
- Atkins had six of their female engineers answering questions at the @AtkinsCareersUK twitter page #notjustforboys
