National Women in Engineering Day (NWED) in 2015 was a huge success with a total of over 400 organisations, schools, colleges, universities, industry bodies and individual engineers all over the world uniting in the name of equality and diversity to celebrate the great achievements of women engineers and encourage more girls and women to consider engineering as a career. We reached thousands of girls on the day, and our twitter activity was seen by millions of people online.
The Prime Minister, David Cameron even tweeted about NWED via his Twitter channel @Number10gov, with the official hashtag #NWED receiving over 20,000 posts on the day and trending for around 9 hours on Twitter. Our website received 16,000 page views on the day, plus taking into account all your amazing events, activities (including a successful Guinness World Record-breaking attempt!), social media campaigns and the conference that took place on the 23rd, the success of NWED was not just international but also phenomenal. Thank you!
