#nwed

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.

How to get involved:

  • Click “Support with Twitter” or “Support with Facebook” or “Support with Tumblr” above to share our message and get the word out to your family and friends and get them to do the same
  •  Host an engineering-related event or activity within your area for young people and publicise it, using social media (using the #NWED hashtag) and mainstream media. For more ideas, visit http://www.nwed.org.uk/upcoming.html  
  • Buy one of our great engineering T-shirts and tweet a picture of yourself wearing the T-shirt with the hashtag #nwed
  • Follow us on Twitter @nwed2015
  • Sign up to our NWED calendar to find out about all the upcoming NWED events
  • On Tuesday, 23 June watch as everyone's messages are shared all at once
For more ideas on how to get involved in NWED 2015, visit http://www.nwed.org.uk/what-you-can-do.html 

Together we change negative perceptions within engineering and inspire the next generation of women engineers for years to come
