International Women in Engineering Day (INWED) is an international awareness campaign which raises the profile of women in engineering and focuses attention on the amazing career
opportunities available to women and girls in this exciting industry. In 2023, the theme is ‘Make safety seen' to celebrate the work that women engineers and planners are doing to support lives, livelihoods, and communities every day.
Ahead of the main event on 23rd June, CIHT Dubai are proud to support INWED with this online seminar focused on women pursuing careers in the highways and transportation sector in the Middle East. The theme of this seminar is 'My Journey' where a panel of women, at different stages of their careers, will relate what influenced their academic and career choices, describe their current roles and responsibilities as well as the challenges, concerns, and opportunities they have encountered along the way. They will share their experiences and thoughts about how professional women in the sector can meet and balance professional and personal choices along the way.
