CELEBRATING INTERNATIONAL WOMEN IN ENGINEERING DAY

Are you an aspiring engineer? Or want to know more about how you can help to #ShapeTheWorld? We meet a group of inspiring women doing just that…

Today, the 23 June, marks the seventh annual International Women In Engineering Day, a day that exists to celebrate the good things women in engineering do across the world. The goal for 2020 is to reach as many people as possible and to celebrate how engineers make the planet a better, safer and more innovative place to be. This year’s theme #ShapeTheWorld encourages more people to become involved in the industry by showcasing women working at every level of engineering.

Elizabeth Donnelly MSc FRSA MRAeS MINCOSE, CEO of the Women’s Engineer Society (pictured below), says: “The Women’s Engineering Society is thrilled that Envision Virgin Racing is involved with Formula E. Our theme for International Women in Engineering Day 2020 (INWED) is Shape the World and we are celebrating the Top 50 Women in Engineering: Sustainability this year too. Engineers will be at the heart of solutions to climate change, and it’s great to see that motor racing can show that even some of the fastest cars in the world don’t have to damage the environment. It’s also fantastic that women feature as engineers and test drivers since diversity in any team always adds value.”
