National Women in Engineering Day was originally launched in the UK on 23 June 2014 by the Women’s Engineering Society (WES), in order to celebrate its 95th anniversary. Receiving UNESCO patronage in 2016, the initiative became international for the first time in 2017, adopting its now familiar moniker, INWED, and enabling the celebration of women in engineering to become global.

As part of UCL Engineering's INWED 2024 celebrations, we caught up with alumni from across our departments to discover how they are they are changing the world through their work.
