A new campaign has been launched by the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) designed to ‘smash stereotypes to bits’ as new research suggests that there is still a disparity between boys and girls, as well as other demographic groups, considering a career in STEM.
To dispel engrained ideas of what a typical engineer ‘looks like’, the IET celebrated the 40th Young Woman Engineer of the Year Awards with a campaign to showcase engineering in a completely different light, dramatically highlighting the diverse career opportunities available in the industry through stunning and unexpected imagery.
To mark International Women’s Day, the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) has launched the call for entries for its 2017 Young Woman Engineer of the Year Awards (YWE), which celebrate their 40th anniversary this year.
We’re encouraging woman engineers from all fields of engineering to put their hands up and be counted on social media as part of the nine percent.
