About Us

All of us working with Womengineer want to close the gender gap in engineering. We believe that gender equality within the engineering profession will benefit both growth and welfare in all countries.
Our mission

We inspire girls to pursue engineering

It is a big problem in today’s society that women do not pursue engineering degrees when they are in college, despite the fact that at the age of ten the interest in STEM subjects among girls is equal to the interest among boys.

At Womengineer, we believe this is due to a lack of knowledge of what these degrees include, outdated norms connected to the STEM subjects, and a general perception that it is simply too difficult. This has created a large deficit of female engineers. The goal of the Womengineer Foundation is to change this!

The lack of female engineers is not only an individual problem; it is a problem for all of society. In addition to the general lack of female engineers, schools, organizations, and companies are also missing out on highly skilled female engineers.

Innovations thrive in an environment where there is a diversity of ideas and perspectives. When considering the bottom line, non-gender equal companies are less profitable and the wage gap between men and women persists.

The easiest way is that you first contact a company that would like to host the event. Contact us straight after that, and we will help you organize the rest.

What is IGEday?

IGEday (Introduce a Girl to Engineering Day) takes place every year in March. On this day, engineering companies and tech organizations are encouraged to welcome girls and non-binary people between 13-19 years old and give them the chance to experience life as an engineer.

During this day, thousands of girls meet role models and get the chance to be inspired to become engineers themselves. 

This event takes place both digitally and in person with companies and organizations all over Sweden.
