International Women in Engineering Day

23 June 2021

International Women in Engineering Day (INWED) is an international awareness campaign created by the Women’s Engineering Society (WES). It aims to raise the profile of women in engineering and highlight the amazing career opportunities available to women and girls in this industry.

Now in its eighth year, the theme for INWED 2021 is ‘Engineering Heroes’. To mark the occasion Loughborough University staff, students and alumnae have shared their achievements, experiences and advice for those considering a career in engineering, and some of our academics will be discussing their lives outside of the day job, in an online discussion panel.

Keep an eye on our social media (Instagram, Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn) throughout the day, as we will be celebrating our Loughborough engineering heroes, and our Lottie dolls will be taking a tour of our spectacular campus and facilities. The Lottie Tour is a campaign by WES that takes 'Lottie' to various different locations, accompanying lots of different engineers to show Lottie what they do in engineering and related careers.

INWED panel discussion: Life outside of work

Join some of our female academics for an online discussion panel, looking at their lives outside of their day job. They will reflect on their achievements, hobbies and interests as well as talk about the good days and bad days. 

Date: 23 June 2021
