Taking place annually on 23rd June, International Women in Engineering Day is an international awareness campaign, under the patronage of UNESCO with the aim of raising the profile of women working in engineering across the world. It focuses attention on the amazing career opportunities available to women in this exciting and dynamic industry and celebrates the outstanding achievements of women engineers.
This year, #INWED18 will be encouraging participants to show the world how they are ‘Raising the bar’ in pursuit of more diversity in engineering.
Kirsten Bodley, CEO of the Women’s Engineering Society said: “We are really pleased to have so much support for International Women in Engineering Day this year, where the theme is ‘Raising the bar’. This chimes really well in the UK with 2018 being the ‘Year of Engineering’ and 100 years since (some) women gained the vote, whilst continuing to encourage global support and engagement in celebrating those who have visibly demonstrated their support for diversity in the engineering sector.”
In its position as a privately owned building engineering principal contractor, JCA is committed to promoting diversity and equal opportunities within its growing workforce of more than 150 staff. The company employs women in various departments and always welcomes and supports women interested in pursuing a career within engineering and construction.
