International Women in Engineering Day takes place on 23 June, and promotes the work of women engineers across the globe. 

Inwed aims to give female engineers around the world a profile, at a time when they are still hugely underrepresented. Figures for 2021 indicate that only 16.5% of engineers in the UK are women, and the event aim is to encourage more young women and girls to take up engineering careers.
