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
