The Telegraph Top 50 Women in Engineering campaign

last modified Feb 28, 2017 05:13 PM
The WE50 campaign aims to raise awareness of the skills shortage facing the industry and the huge discrepancy between the number of men vs women currently in Engineering professions, to change perceptions and encourage young women to consider Engineering as a viable and rewarding career.

Nominations are available to women in any engineering profession aged 35 and under.

Feel free to nominate as many candidates from your organisation as you like.

Nominations can be submitted via the online hub from the 23rd of Feb.

The campaign does not intend to rank seniority of nominees, but to recognise those who act as role models and provide inspiration to other women engineers. Equal consideration is given to interns/apprentices/graduates as manager or execs. What is important is an example of something innovative, overcoming adversity, an exceptional project, fundraising or network activity, committees or clubs etc. The eventual top 50 women in engineering will be listed in standalone supplement produced by The Daily Telegraph and invited to an awards dinner in central London on the 23rd of June to celebrate their achievements.
