Happy National Women in Engineering Day!

Today is dedicated to raising the profile and celebrating the achievements of women in engineering.

National Women in Engineering Day was created by the Women’s Engineering Society (WES) to celebrate its 95th anniversary. Today, WES wants to focus attention on the great opportunities for women in engineering, at a time when it has never been more important to address the engineering skills shortage. By encouraging girls into engineering careers we will not only be increasing diversity and inclusion – a business imperative – but enabling us to fill the substantial future job opportunities that have been predicted in this sector.

The idea behind National Women in Engineering Day is to encourage all groups (Governmental, educational, corporate, Professional Engineering Institutions, individuals and other organizations) to organize their own events in support of the day, and link them together for maximum impact through the use of the NWED logo, corresponding website, and supporting resources.

To celebrate this day, head over to The Women in STEM Idea Exchange Summit website and register for our upcoming summit this fall in Boston. The Summit brings together companies struggling to fill their STEM job pipelines with female college students pursuing STEM degrees. The summits are designed to facilitate closing the gap between corporate needs for a STEM-enabled workforce and student questions about job prospects that align their passion with the needs of corporate America.

Last year, attendees, both students and corporations alike, shared what they have experienced and learned, gained insight into best practices for recruitment and retention, engaged with the next generation of STEM women and worked together to drive change. We look forward to meeting you at the next summit to inspire, engage, discuss and change the future of the STEM workforce!
