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?
Thank you to everyone who got involved – we received some great responses.
