The UK Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) is presenting a new exhibition in London, UK, celebrating women in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM).

This includes showcasing current winners and finalists of the IET’s Young Woman Engineer of the Year (YWE) Awards and looking back at the history of women in engineering.

‘Engineering is an increasingly important discipline, tackling socially important challenges that affect millions of lives around the world,’ said Suw Charman-Anderson, who founded Ada Lovelace Day, which will kick off the exhibition. ‘It is essential that we inspire more girls and women to pursue engineering careers so that we can benefit from their talents, acumen and unique perspectives.’
