ICE International Team releases INWED 2020 short film

In support of International Women in Engineering Day (INWED) on Tuesday 23 June 2020, the ICE International Team has conducted a photo campaign.

The campaign showcases female engineers around the world, at every level and in every sector, and as members of diverse teams. We want to inspire more females to think about civil engineering as a future career and to highlight positive messaging during the Covid-19 crisis. The overall theme of INWED 2020 is #ShapeTheWorld.

ICE’s international female members at all levels were invited to submit a photo showing at least one female engineer:

  • In front of a completed project they have worked on (to provide real career examples), and/or
  • In front of any civil engineering project (to give an idea of the variety and scale of projects e.g. bridge, museum, toilet block, hospital, airport, and so on).

They were encouraged to be creative by using social media cards, inspirational words and phrases, and to share their photos on their social media channels using #INWED20 and #ShapeTheWorld.

ICE then used the photos to create a short film to celebrate the contribution and outstanding achievements of ICE’s international female members who have contributed greatly to the world we live in to make it a better place.

Photos were received from a wide range of countries* and all grades of membership were represented.

Many thanks indeed to all who have supported our photo campaign either by sending in their own photos or encouraging others to submit theirs. Please share the video on your social media channels using the hashtags #INWED20 and #ShapeTheWorld.
