23rd June, 2020 is celebrated as the “International Women in Engineering Day” around the globe every year. International Women in Engineering Day is an international awareness campaign to raise the profile of women in engineering and focus attention on the amazing career opportunities available to girls in this exciting industry. It celebrates the outstanding achievements of women engineers throughout the world.
Silver Oak University IEEE WIE Affinity Group always aims to advocate women in leadership roles in IEEE governance and career advancement for women in the profession. Keeping the same in mind and to praise the notable contribution and overwhelming achievements of women in the engineering field, SOU IEEE WIE AG decided to celebrate this special day virtually in this crucial scenario of Covid-19. To celebrate this day, we had organized an online activity wherein students/participants were invited to showcase the artistry on “Women in Engineering” in numerous categories such as Poetry, Write-Ups, Posters/ Digital Graphics, Sketches/ Paintings and Videos. We had received a wonderful response from the participants. Students had expressed their thoughts on “Women in Engineering” in a unique way.
