Today Get with the Program celebrates International Women in Engineering Day which was started by the Women’s Engineering Society, (WES) in 2013 to promote and champion the work that women engineers across the globe are doing.
The theme this year is #MakeSafetySeen.
International Women in engineering Day gives women engineers around the world a profile when they are still hugely under-represented. With an estimated 16.5% of engineers in the UK women, this day focuses on the work that they do and acts as a platform for more young women and girls to explore and embark on careers in engineering.
This is a day that is very close to our hearts and our mission to inspire the tech innovators of the future and to increase diversity within STEM based careers.
