What an IWD week!

International Women’s Day is a day to imagine and reflect on how far we have come towards a gender equal world which is free of bias, stereotypes, and discrimination.

Our group has always been active during this week working alongside our WES Tyne and Tees Cluster friends and our Climate Champion, Julie Harrison, due to the significant links with SDG 5 Gender Equality.

The week included very many events which included:

. Our Chair representing EngTog and the UK at UN CSW 67

. A face to face multi sector event to a group of girls in at Outwood Academy Riverside Middlesbrough

. Attending a Power of Women Campaign event

. Part taking in Durham University’s Earth Day

. We launched our new Inclusion for Good page.

We can all help the world become more diverse, equitable, and inclusive where difference is valued and celebrated.

At Engineering Together we #EmbraceEquity.
