Every year on 23 June we celebrate the accomplishments of female engineers for International Women in Engineering Day (INWED).
This year is even more special as the Women’s Engineering Society (WES) – who founded INWED – are celebrating 100 years of inspiring women engineers, scientists and technologists. Happy birthday WES!
#TransformTheFuture is the theme this year for #INWED19. Female chemical engineers are playing a vital part in helping to transform the future.

IChemE exists to be a professional qualifying body and a learned society. It sets the standard for chemical engineering through a range of membership grades and registrations and for those seeking to improve their professional status, enhance their technical knowledge and share these learnings with their peers.
Without the efforts of our volunteers we cannot fulfil these functions.
This week we have been profiling just a few of our many volunteers and the work they do across the world, to mark Volunteers Week 2019.
In our final blog of the series, Riyaz Khambati explains his volunteering roles that contribute towards IChemE’s qualifications activities and how he supports young engineers working towards becoming professionally qualified.

To mark Volunteers Week 2019, we’re publishing a blog series profiling just some of our many volunteers across the world.
It’s thanks to the effort of all of our volunteers that we can fulfil our functions as a qualifying body and a learned society, sharing the chemical engineering expertise and learnings of our members.
Next in the blog series is Tom Lakey, who explains why he is passionate to volunteer as the Secretary for the Hull and Humber Members Group.

IChemE is led by members, supports members and serves society; but we can’t fulfil our role as a qualifying body or share learnings in chemical engineering without our member volunteers.
Volunteers from across the world contribute to IChemE’s activities on a daily basis across all aspects of our work.
Volunteers in Australia celebrated Volunteers Week on 20-27 May, and this week (1-7 June 2019) marks Volunteers Week in the UK. So, we want to celebrate and say thank you to all of our volunteers for their fantastic contributions. We’re profiling just some of our volunteers to highlight their great work in a blog series this week.
First up, Robert Peeling, Fellow Representative and Chair of the Communications Working Group in IChemE’s Congress, explains why he enjoys his role in the newly established Congress, which advises the Board of Trustees on matters of interest to IChemE and its members.
