Two University of Manchester engineers, Professors Caroline Jay and Aline Miller, have been honoured with inclusion in the Top 50 Women in Engineering (WE50) for their stellar contributions and impact in engineering.
The International Women in Engineering Day takes place today, 23 June and continues to lead the way to provide female engineers with a voice heard around the world.
With 16.5% of engineers now being women, the annual INWED event provides female engineers with an opportunity to shine in an industry where they are underrepresented. This one-of-a-kind event plays a pivotal role in not just showcasing talent but also in encouraging and inspiring the next generation of female engineers.
Now in its seventh year, the 2022 WE50 winners celebrate women who are older than 18 who can demonstrate the creation or improvement of a product or process that makes a difference.
For 2022, the Women’s Engineering Society, in association with The Guardian and Ball Corporation, a global supplier of sustainable packaging, invited nominations on numerous factors, including their ability to support and combat climate change, work as an advocate for women in STEM, their drive to make a difference within the engineering industry and achieving beyond what would normally be expected.
“Once again WES is delighted to celebrate the achievements of women engineers. It’s a joy that so many innovative women are making a difference to our everyday lives and working to mitigate the impact that engineering has on the environment.
