Strathclyde’s Women+ in Engineering Presents, Ethical Engineering – A Series of events

Strathclyde’s Women+ in Engineering Society is putting on a series of events this month to discuss different topics related to Ethical Engineering: climate change, white saviourism, inclusion, and feminism. These events are open to all, and attendance to more than one is encouraged! We will be building our personal ethical frameworks as it applies to engineering with important lessons and conversations about each specific topic.


Our first event is The Climate Crisis – What could, and should engineers do? It will be this coming Tuesday 16th November, from 17:00-18:30 and we’d love to see you there! We will have an interdisciplinary panel of ethicists and engineers to discuss how our values can inform our design decisions and our role in fighting the climate crisis. Everyone is welcome to come along and participate in a productive conversation.


The series includes these other events:


Nov 22: Decolonising Engineering: Ethical Development Projects

Getting proactive about our roles in salvationist and patriarchal systems and learning to counteract them.


Dec 2Intersectionality and Inclusion: Who gets to be an engineer?

Going beyond “why is diversity important”, a panel will discuss what inclusion truly means and practical steps of how to achieve it.



Dec 7Feminist Engineering: Keynote by Dr Donna Riley

Challenging traditional notions of engineering education.



Sign up and block the time off on your calendars! It’s going to be a great series.
