On June 23rd each year, International Women in Engineering Day highlights a profession that keeps building. And when it comes to engineering, the profession fills roles across many sectors.

Numerous fields require engineering specialties. Architectural, aerospace, marine, electrical, and computer engineering careers abound. However, engineering expertise is needed in many more areas. And the demand is growing every year, too. Despite that, women only fill a fraction of these positions. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor and Statistics, just under 13% of the engineers in the U.S. are women. Australia's numbers are similar, too. However, in the UK, the number dips to 9%.

Campaigns around the globe spotlight the need for more women in the engineering workforce. This day not only encourages women to enter engineering fields but also promotes a diverse workforce. It also celebrates the women engineers in the workforce. As role models, they are qualified to encourage more women to join the field.

Women in engineering lead the way for many others to join the workforce. Share your experiences in the engineering field and encourage other women to pursue a career in engineering. The day is not only a celebration of women, but it also serves as an opportunity for education. Whether you seek more information for yourself or impart your knowledge to others, take part in #WomenInEngineeringDay.
