National Women in Engineering Day was launched for the first time in the UK on 23 June 2014 by the Women’s Engineering Society (WES) to celebrate its 95th anniversary. Since that launch in 2014 the day has grown enormously over the subsequent years to the point
where it received UNESCO patronage in 2016. In 2017, National Women in Engineering Day became international for the first time due to the interest and enthusiasm developed by the international audience and participants in the previous years. International Women in Engineering Day (INWED) was born to enable the celebration of women in engineering to become global.

INWED’s theme this year is ‘Shape the World’ and how engineers work tirelessly every single day to make our world better. There is also a strong focus on sustainable development and the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals and how all engineers are working
towards a greener world.
