Why do we need female engineers?
It’s a simple, in some ways controversial question, that we put out to IChemE members a couple of weeks ago to mark today’s International Women In Engineering Day.
We received a fantastic response from chemical engineers working all over the world – take a look at them below and stay tuned on Twitter where we will be sharing them throughout the day.

Join us on Twitter throughout the day when we’ll be sharing #INWED17 activity from around the globe, and tweeting the member responses.
You can join in the discussion too. Tell us how you are celebrating the day by using #INWED17, and shine a light on the women engineers at your organisation – #RaisingProfiles
And don’t forget this year’s theme – #MenAsAllies. If you’re a male engineer, how are you helping to improve gender diversity, and why do you think it’s important?
