Women Unite in Engineering Across the Globe


The next generation of engineers and innovators will face new challenges and will be called upon to play a vital role in helping solve the world’s future health, safety, environmental and economic problems.

To help prepare these future leaders, National Engineers Week Foundation presents the 5th Annual Global Marathon for, by and about Women in Engineering.

Sponsored by Agilent, Motorola and the S.D. Bechtel, Jr. Foundation, this live, 24-hour worldwide forum provides information, insight, and inspiration for women and girls on topics related to careers in engineering and technology.

The Global Marathon begins at noon (EDT) Wednesday, March 11th and runs continuously through noon (EDT), Thursday, March 12th.

“The Global Marathon is a great way to unite women from different cultures who have similar goals and experiences,” said Maria de Magalhaes, a BP environmental engineer/advisor helping to organize the marathon in UK/Europe. “As a woman who was educated in Portugal, Austria and the UK, I am just one example of the global nature of engineering and science. Engineering is a worldwide enterprise and that diversity makes us stronger as innovators and thought leaders.”

This year’s Global Marathon is themed “Connecting Women to Engineer a Better Future; Because Dreams Need Doing.”
