It is International Women’s Day!
It is Engineer’s week! Every year, February 19-25th, engineers all over the world are celebrated. This special week is devoted to celebrating how engineers make a difference in our world, adding a voice to the conversation about the need for engineers, technicians and technologists, and engaging students in the world of engineering.
“Founded by NSPE in 1951, Engineer’s Week (EWeek) is dedicated to ensuring a diverse and well-educated future engineering workforce by increasing understanding of and interest in engineering and technology careers. Today, this is a formal coalition of more than 70 engineering, education, and cultural societies, and more than 50 corporations and government agencies. Dedicated to raising public awareness of engineers' positive contributions to quality of life, EWeek promotes recognition among parents, teachers, and students of the importance of a technical education and a high level of math, science, and technology literacy, and motivates youth, to pursue engineering careers in order to provide a diverse and vigorous engineering workforce. Each year, EWeek reaches thousands of schools, businesses, and community groups across the U.S.” (https://www.nspe.org/resources/partners-and-state-societies/engineers-week)
As the saying goes, it’s not just what you do, it’s how you do it.
