Nominations are now open for WE50 2020 – the Top 50 Women in Engineering poll and ICE is aiming to boost the number of civil engineers who make the list.
The Top 50 Women in Engineering (WE50) list was first released in 2016, highlighting the work of 50 brilliant women engineers of all ages and different career stages every year. Last year, 7 of those included in the list were ICE members or Fellows.
Founded by the Women's Engineering Society (WES) in 2016, it is a UK awards event linked to International Women in Engineering Day: a global celebration of women in engineering that takes place on 23 June each year.
In 2015, the United Nations signed a historic declaration to mark its 70th anniversary. They committed to achieving sustainable development in its three dimensions – economic, social and environmental, and created the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, with 17 Sustainable Development Goals.
