The focus for INWED 2023 is #makesafetyseen
As part of running the International Women In Engineering Day we also host an INWED Webinar on the 23 June every year. This year we are very excited to be joined by Dame Dawn Childs and Amanda Creak from Morgan Stanley.
There will also be a talk from Dr Nina Baker, a historian specialising in the history of Women in Engineering and a panel of the WE50 winners who will be answering questions.

She has lived with her family in Glasgow since 1989, working variously as a materials lecturer in further education and as a university research administrator and, until 2017, as an elected city councillor. Now retired from all that, her interest in promoting STEM careers for girls has led her to become an independent researcher, mainly specialising in the history of women in engineering.
