The Institute of Refrigeration (IOR) will again sponsor International Women in Engineering Day (INWED 2018) on 23 June. This is the third time that the IOR has sponsored the event, reaffirming its commitment to promoting diversity in RACHP and the engineering sector as a whole.
IOR President Steve Gill said: “The Institute of Refrigeration is proud to continue its support and sponsorship of International Women in Engineering Day. It is an opportunity to celebrate the achievements of women in engineering and serves to encourage more young people and women to consider careers in engineering, or to return to it. The IOR is working to raise the profile of women engineers working within the RACHP industry by recognising the positive impact they make, and by actively promoting gender diversity and inclusivity.”
BSRIA is to run a series of events and local careers days with schools and colleges as part of the 2018 Year of Engineering.
The recently announced national campaign is designed to increase awareness and understanding of what engineers do. It is aimed at young people aged seven to 16, their parents and teachers.
