Celebrating Our Women in Engineering

by Kat Phelps, Marketing Manager

International Women in Engineering Day, brought to you by Women’s Engineering Society (WES) celebrates its 9th year in 2022, and figures as of June 2021 show that 16.5% of engineers are women. INWED gives women engineers around the world a profile when they are still hugely under-represented in their professions. As the only platform of its kind, it plays a vital role in encouraging more young women and girls to take up engineering careers. #INWED22

“The best advice I have for women interested in Engineering is to connect with and support other females in the industry. Sometimes it can feel lonely in this male-dominated field, so it’s key to remind yourself that you’re in great company being a woman in STEM! DBR, specifically, is full of brilliant women who succeed in this field daily, and I’m honored to be included in that.” – Sandra Ward, Mechanical EIT II

“Being surrounded by amazing designers and engineers has influenced me in pursuing my mechanical degree and being one of many women in engineering to make a difference in this industry. I am glad that working at DBR has connected me to knowledgeable designers and engineers to support my engineering career so that one day I could be the influence in encouraging young women to take the path into engineering.” – Lessly Ochoa, BIM Operator/Drafter
