Nominations sought for top women engineer awards

UK: Nominations are being sought for this year’s Women in Engineering Awards to celebrate women who have improved engineering in service of our society.

In association with The Guardian newspaper and Assystem, the 2021 Top 50 Women in Engineering seeks to celebrate “engineering heroes”, described as “the best, brightest and bravest women in engineering, who recognise a problem, then dare to be part of the solution; who undertake everyday heroics as much as emergency ones”.

Founded by the Women’s Engineering Society in 2016, the WE50 awards are a UK event linked to

International Women in Engineering Day (INWED) – the celebration of women in engineering that takes place on 23 June each year.

Nominations are sought for women who have improved engineering in service of our society. These individuals may be involved in designing, delivering, developing, maintaining or researching engineering in the following circumstances:

• Emergency response to immediate need, for example, the pandemic, natural/manufactured disasters, search and rescue

• Improvements to the social or environmental impact of infrastructure designed to keep the public safe, for example, building and road safety, energy, telecoms and water services

• Life-saving medical response, whether by means of diagnostics, devices, medication or equipment, for example, pharmaceutical drugs, tests and vaccines, hospital diagnostic equipment such as x-rays and scanners, surgical tools, protective equipment, including clothing and masks

• Responding to the climate and biodiversity emergencies

Nominations can be made on the WES website. Nominations close at noon on Monday 15 March 2021.
