Today we recognise all our female IAHR members who are working in water, hydro-environmental sciences and their practical application. Some of these inspiring women are pictured here in their workspaces all around the world.
We also acknowledge the IAHR task force on Strengthening Diversity and Gender Equity which encourages the participation of women in engineering & is actively striving to achieve a more balanced membership.
Bringing diversity to our association is not a trend or a social responsibility. The benefits of diversity are immense; which is why our taskforce aims to increase the number of women members from 25 per cent to 33 per cent in the next five years - while increasing the ratio of women to men in divisions and committees.
If you want to join us, please reach out. We are IAHR, working together.
International Women's Day (March 8) is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural, and political achievements of women. The day also marks a call to action for accelerating women's equality.
This year’s slogan #BreakTheBias is a call for a gender equal world, a world free of bias, stereotypes and discrimination, a world that's diverse, equitable, and inclusive, a world where difference is valued and celebrated.
IAHR is taking this opportunity to put women members work in the spotlight as part of the actions from the Task force on Strengthening Diversity and Gender Equity.
IAHR is aware that gender diversity often remains a struggle. This is why IAHR endeavours to identify women leaders, help develop the skills of young women members and recognise their contributions. We invite you, women, to become part of the IAHR community and help increase the visibility and representativity of women engineers and scientists! On this International Women's Day we also invite you to share this poster together with the hashtags #IAHRWomen#IWD2022 #BreakTheBias and a link to this page.
The official hashtag is #IAHRWomen
