International Women in Engineering Day

Now in its 7th year, International Women in Engineering Day (INWED) aims to raise the profile of women engineers and encourage more people to consider engineering as a profession for all!

📊 In studies from 2018, women only made up just over 12% of the engineering workforce and only 25% of girls aged 16-18 would consider a career in engineering. .

👷‍♀️ Here are three influential women engineers from history through to today to get you started! How do you think they helped to “shape the world”? .

Mary Jackson, Gwynne Shotwell and Emily Warren Roebling.

A sip of science history: Gerty Cori

👨🏽‍🏫 A sip of science history! ⁣Introducing… Gerty Cori!

🔬 Gerty Cori was a pioneering biochemist and America’s first ever female Nobel Prize winner. ⁣

💫 Gerty and her husband Carl Ferdinand Cori, collaborated to define the process of sugar metabolism, known as the Cori Cycle. ⁣

👩🏻‍🔬 Despite her credentials she was denied many of the career opportunities her husband and collaborator was afforded because of her gender. Her contributions to science were eventually recognised, as she gained full professorship just months before her Nobel Prize success. ⁣
