Celebrating Women in Engineering Day 2022 with Integrant

Thursday, June 23rd marks the ninth year of the official international celebration of women in engineering. A day that we, a software development company, acknowledge with pride and admiration. However, in celebrating the achievements of women in engineering, it's important to recognize both the progress that has been made and what progress still needs to come.

In the world of software development, we must recognize the disproportionate figures of the number of men vs. women currently in the industry. Even further than that, we must also take notice of the differences in roles and pay rates that exists. 

In our effort to recognize and provide solutions to these stark differences, we now have women in 50% of our tech leadership positions and 40% of our engineering positions. As these numbers are still up for continued improvement, we strive for equal opportunity at every level. There is always room for advancement and expansion when it comes to opportunities for women in software engineering. Integrant is committed to continuing this progress.

History of Women in Engineering

Women in Engineering Day has a rich history stemming from the end of WWI. Post-war a group of European women established the Women’s Engineering Society. The society’s role was to provide support and opportunities for women who were currently holding or were looking for roles in engineering.

On the 95th anniversary of the society, Women in Engineering Day was established. This day is used to promote the importance of women-led ideas and collaboration as well as promote opportunities in engineering for better accessibility.

In 2017, Women in Engineering Day was officially recognized with international observance.
