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.
So, to continue the mission to raise the profile of women in engineering, and to celebrate their achievements, we asked our members: How do you feel female chemical engineers are contributing to #TransformTheFuture?

Truly inspirational for all generations. Women’s emotional intelligence capabilities brings a perception and way of thinking which allows both sustainability and continuous improvement in any activity we endeavor.
We have 20 + Women Process Engineers in Worley, Oman office. So ,on the occasion of IWED, it feels us immense proud and pleasure to accommodate such many women engineers on board and groom them upto the need of the industry. Join me to wish them best and good luck
