Now in its seventh year, International Women in Engineering Day is a day to celebrate and raise awareness of women choosing a career path within this exciting industry. Taking place on 23rd June, this day is all about appreciating the contribution that women engineers make. Although the campaign is now running virtually, there are several ways you can get involved in the celebrations and to #ShapeTheWorld.
