International Day of Women and Girls in Science 2022
Friday 11 February 2022
One of the major aims of our society is to raise awareness about both the achievements and challenges of science, engineering, and all things technological. As we continue to develop our educational activities, we would we like to ensure that – as far as possible – we link what we do into both the national and global picture.
There are many national and international celebrations, some of which are dedicated to areas of science and engineering; these are occasions designed to educate the public on issues of concern, and to help mobilise political will and resources to address national and global problems.
As we continue to develop our activities, we will try to co-ordinate some of our activities around selected STEM celebrations, either by simply providing information or by organising specific activities to use these as a springboard for raising awareness.
Please think about volunteering to help CSES contribute to or organise an event next year to celebrate:

Did you know?
Only 11% of the UK engineering workforce is female and only 5% of registered engineers and technicians (i.e. CEng, IEng, EngTech) are women. We have the lowest percentage of female engineering professionals in Europe. Whereas Latvia, Bulgaria and Cyprus lead with nearly 30% and in contrast Algeria, Tunisia, Cuba, Peru and Paraguay already have well over 40%.
