We live in an era of rapid technological change. Across the world, global problem solvers are using digital innovations to take on some of the world’s biggest challenges. As we continue to apply creative digital solutions to age-old global problems, one thing becomes clearer: when we work together, invite and nurture diversity, and encourage everyone to contribute, we speed the pace of social change exponentially.
International Women’s Day isn’t just a day to celebrate the many social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women; it’s an opportunity to be a global problem solver for women around the world.
For centuries, engineers have played a foundational role in the design and deployment of the vital infrastructure systems that drive our cities and communities. But today, the work of these critical problem solvers is more important than ever. As we celebrate 2017 National Engineers Week, we recognize engineers not only for their past contributions, but for their future work in enabling our cities and communities to act on the promise of a smarter, safer and more sustainable way of life.
