Women’s History Month
Women’s History Month provides us with an opportunity to observe and celebrate the achievements of women, both in the past and the present.
In recognition of Women’s History Month, ASME will highlight several unique perspectives from our engineering community, including pioneers and trailblazers determined to break boundaries in their everyday lives.
The contributions women have made to engineering and to ASME cannot be understated. Since Kate Gleason became an ASME member back in 1918 and helped pave the way for future generations, many women have pursued roles in the engineering field, yet there is much more work to be done.
ASME is proud to stand with other organizations, such as the Society of Women Engineers (SWE), and the Women in Engineering ProActive Network (WEPAN), as we seek new ways to help advance women in the engineering profession.
We also strive to create and support programs that offer women actionable opportunities to excel. A prime example is our Women in Standards & Certification (WiSC) initiative, which harnesses the power of mentorship, training, collaboration and visibility for participants in order to organically enhance the culture of ASME Standards and Certification within an inclusive and supportive environment.
ASME is committed to providing a forum to amplify these stories and support the dialogue needed to foster true progress in our mission to advance diversity, equity, and inclusion.
