In this talk, some experiences recently developed to make the work of female engineers visible and promote female vocations in engineering will be presented.
In the field of Telecommunications, the activities carried out internationally in the Communications society of the Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineering (IEEE) will be discussed, to make visible the women who work in this field, through its History and Women in Communications Engineering (WICE) committees. Also, many initiatives developed to support and promote young women that are starting their careers.
In a more general area of engineering and science, the experience of “A female engineer in every school” will be shared, developed by the Association of Women Researchers and Technologists (AMIT) in Spain to promote engineering vocations in girls (and also boys) at early ages.
The view of the speaker about their importance and lessons learnt while developing these initiatives will be shared.
