Today we celebrate International Women in Engineering Day’s (INWED) 10th year, brought to you by the Women’s Engineering Society (WES), a charity and professional network of women engineers scientists and technologists offering inspiration, support and professional development.

#MakeSafetySeen is this year’s INWED theme, and WES are profiling the best, brightest and bravest women in engineering, those who #MakeSafetySeen and are helping to building towards a brighter future.

As always, Floth would like to encourage more women to consider engineering as a profession. An equal representation of women in engineering would provide the industry with different perspectives, creativity and innovation and would better reflect the community as a whole.

Floth embraces equality in the workplace, values the unique differences between genders and enjoys the positive impact this variety adds to our business.

We would also like to take this opportunity to recognise our female engineers and our CAD team – trailblazing a path for future generations of aspiring young women:

INWED gives women engineers around the world a profile when they are still hugely under-represented. As the only platform of its kind, INWED plays a vital role in encouraging more young women and girls to take up engineering careers.
