Entries for this year’s YWE awards close on 31 July.

We are searching for our next Young Woman Engineer of the Year (YWE) – a dynamic young woman who represents the very best of the engineering profession.

The winner will be an able ambassador, representing women in engineering and acting as an inspirational role model.

Entries close on Thursday, 31 July 2014. If you are interested in applying, all the information you need is available on our YWE webpage.

We’ll be announcing the winner at a ceremony in London on 10 December 2014.


Women in engineering webcast

In June, we held a special Women in engineering webcast. It was a chance to celebrate National Woman in Engineering Day, and also highlight the upcoming deadline for YWE entries.

IET members and non-members had the opportunity to ask a panel of female engineers about their experiences as women in engineering, and what can be done to encourage more women to enter the profession.

The panel included IET Fellow and MP for Newcastle Central Chi Onwurah, 2013 YWE finalist Victoria Martin, IET Fellow Margaret Graham and engineering lecturer Leah Ridgway.

They discussed a whole range of topics including gendered toys, engineering and motherhood, inclusivity in the workplace and protecting the title of engineer.

If you missed watching the webcast live, it is still available to view on demand via IET.tv.
