WES looks to celebrate inventors and innovators

Feb 21, 2022

The Women’s Engineering Society (WES) have announced the launch of the 2022 WE50 nominations. In association with The Guardian newspaper, the 2022 Top 50 Women in Engineering Awards celebrate the incredible women in engineering, who identify an unmet need then create the solution, or improve on existing products and processes to make our lives easier.

The nominations opened on the International Day of Women and Girls in Science on 11 February. It is open to those women engineers who have created or improved a product or process, particularly if it supports sustainability and/or combats climate change, and supported other women to do so.

The winners will be announced as part of International Women in Engineering Day (INWED) on 23 June 2022, with winners invited to a celebratory event in recognition of their achievements.

Nomination deadline: 28 March 2022

Are you an inventor or innovator?

WES are asking the public for their help in uncovering the most inspiring female inventors and innovators working in engineering today. Self-nomination is both welcomed and encouraged, as presenting the very best role models of today will encourage future generations of women and girls to consider engineering as a career and help redress the gender imbalance in the discipline.

Visit the WE50 awards to make a nomination and learn about entry tips.
