International Women in Engineering Day 2018

June 23, 2018 - INWED 2018

We at SAGE Publishing are incredibly proud of the women engineers who edit and publish in our journals. They are doing cutting edge research that will have a profound impact on our society. To support our engineers, as well as the important work that the Women in Engineering Society are doing with INWED 2018, we spoke to a handful of the women engineers that we partner with as editors and authors about their current projects, career highlights, and what they would like people to know about being an engineer that they might not already know. 



    Below, you'll find our interviews, as well as "5 Things You Can Do To Celebrate" for INWED 2018! 

    Women in Engineering Interviews: 

    Can you briefly explain what you are currently researching and its real life applications?



    What is your career highlight?



    What would you like people to know about being an engineer that they not might already know?




    5 Things You Can Do To Celebrate: 

    1. Watch our Women in Engineering Interview series. We asked our engineers three questions and have collected their answers into threee videos that highlight the diverse backgrounds of our engineers and the fascinating research that they are doing, as well as their clear enthusiasm and passion for their work. 
    2. Attend 'Art and Engineering in the Fashion Industry'.  The Institution of Mechanical Engineers to mark INWED is hosting a roundtable Q &A with Nerys Edwards and Elif Ozden-Yenigun chaired by Dr Jenifer Baxter with the launch of a report on 'Engineering out Fashion Waste' delivered by lead author Aurelie Hulse. The event will take place in the evening on July 4th, 2018. 
    3. Read research on our Women and STEM microsite. We compiled this microsite especially to celebrate INWED2018, and have brought together relevant resources from a number of our journals. 
    4. Listen to "Gonna Be An Engineer" by Peggy Seeger. This song released in 1979 captures how far we have come, as well as the continued frustration and challenges that accompany the role as a woman engineer. Encourage young women in your network to pursue engineering or appreciate the women who are already engineers for their hard work. 
    5. Tweet, retweet, like, share! Let's get #INWED18 trending and shine a spotlight on the important contributions of women engineers. If you're an engineer, post a photo - if you know an engineer, tweet how much their work means to you.
