The Global Coil Winding And Electrical Manufacturing Event

Women in Engineering

Introducing Women in Engineering at CWIEME

At CWIEME Berlin, our new Women in Engineering initiative is vital to the progress of our industry.

We want to provide a platform for dialogue, raise awareness and support the industry's efforts to create more inclusive and equitable workplaces for employees. As an industry, there is more we can do, and as an event we know that it is important to encourage and include all those who work within our important global value chain.

Why are we launching WEC?

The challenges

The challenges faced by women in engineering are multifaceted, ranging from gender bias and underrepresentation to work-life balance conflicts with societal norms.

A silver lining

Despite these hurdles, the proportion of women engineers in the UK has risen from 10.5% in 2010 to 16.5% in 2021, and similar trends are observed in the US, particularly in environmental engineering.  

There's more to do

Our networking opportunities celebrate the brilliance of diversity, encouraging connections that transcend barriers, all while addressing the critical question: How can we build a more balanced and fair environment for all engineers, regardless of gender? 

Content at CWIEME

At CWIEME Berlin 2024, one of our key themes on the live content agenda is Women in Engineering.

Fireside Chat

The agenda features a Fireside Chat focused on building allyship and advocacy, where participants will share personal stories and practical tips for supporting colleagues from diverse backgrounds.

Roundtable Discussion

A roundtable discussion will delve into cultural diversity and global collaboration, highlighting the industry‚Äôs efforts to address gender and race-based imbalances and best practices for cross-cultural teamwork.  


The event also includes networking segments. "Welcome Coffee" planned to connect, inspire and empower the women in engineering, and "Celebrating the Brilliance", designed to foster connections and honor the diversity among attendees.

Panel Discussion

This panel will explore diversity in the workplace, how to foster and encourage a more inclusive sector, and address strategies, barriers and lessons learnt.

WiPE Interviews

Transformers Magazine and CWIEME are working together on a new format of the Women in Power Engineering programme.

In this series of live sessions, we'll be interviewing prominent women at the academy, designed to support women in our industry through scholarships for education at the Transformers Academy. 

This initiative is a core value of our project and we're enthusiastic about making a positive impact together.
