Women Engineers: Empowering Rural Women and Girls

© All rights reserved

UNESCO, together with the World Federation of Engineering Organisations (WFEO) who are celebrating their 50th anniversary in 2018, are organising an event on Women in Engineering - Empowering Rural Women and Girls.

This half-day symposium will be an opportunity to examine the under-representation of women in engineering, what engineering can do to improve the lives of rural women and girls in line with the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and successful case-studies of women in engineering.

The outcomes and recommendations from this meeting will be discussed at the Commission on the Status of Women CSW 62 in New York on 21 March 2018.
