With the extremely low number of women engineers in the UK (the lowest in the whole of Europe), there is a serious issue in how engineering is currently being perceived. National Women in Engineering Day (NWED) 23 June was thus launched last year, as a way of inspiring and encouraging girls to consider engineering as a suitable career. You can help raise awareness of NWED for 2015 by joining our Thunderclap!
The focus of our campaign is to show girls and women the diversity surrounding engineering and the vast opportunities available within this sector. This is achieved by encouraging organisations and education establishments to get involved and host their own engineering event in order to showcase engineering as a suitable path for both girls and boys.
Our aim is to bridge the gap between women and engineering, encouraging more girls across the UK to consider engineering as a profession.
