She Can Engineer


“SheCanEngineer is a Diversity and Inclusion initiative based in London, UK.
The SheCanEngineer committee is a team of engineers from various Professional Institutions organizing events in occasion of International Women in Engineering Day (InWED). The aim of the committee is to promote and raise awareness around Diversity and Inclusion in the Engineering and Construction industry by showcasing the achievements and talents of women engineers.
Since 2016, volunteers from the Professional Engineering Institutions have come together to showcase the accomplishments and talents of women in engineering. 

Historically, SheCanEngineer work has centred around International Women in Engineering Day - with networking events celebrating professional engineers, and STEM Initiatives designed to inspire the next generation. In more recent years, they also run social media campaigns and a podcast series on all major streaming platforms with new episodes realised every month.”
