International Women in Engineering Day focuses on the amazing careers of women in engineering, science and technology and celebrates the achievements of outstanding women engineers.
This year's theme for INWED is 'Shape the World'. Women (and men) all over the globe can help raise the profile of women engineers and encourage more people to consider engineering as a profession for all.
This year many engineers all over the world are working from home. INWED celebrations will be quite different this year but we will be celebrating this day virtually and reflect on the celebrations that have happened in the past.
Through our website, we will look back at some amazing women who have been pioneers of engineering in Nepal. We will also look at some images from previous year’s INWED Celebrations.
The first International Women in Engineering day was celebrated on June 23rd 2017, with Nepal being one of the first countries to mark the event in that and subsequent years. Since then, the Nepal Engineers' Association, the UK’s Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE) and the UK funded Rural Access Programme (RAP3) have been co-hosting this event to celebrate the work of women engineers in Nepal.
