International Women in Engineering Day 2023

International Women in Engineering Day 2023 (INWED) is a global initiative celebrated on June 23 each year, dedicated to recognising the achievements of women in engineering and inspiring the next generation of female engineers. It is a day to reflect on the progress made towards gender equality in the engineering field and to reaffirm our commitment to supporting and empowering women in this industry.

One of our outstanding employees, Lola Lahoz Nogales, Deputy of Head of Airworthiness & Design Office Manager in Spain, has consistently demonstrated a deep commitment to empowering women in engineering. Her unwavering support and advocacy have significantly encouraged more women to pursue careers in the traditionally male-dominated field. Lola has catalysed positive change through mentorship programs, career development initiatives, and engaging outreach activities.

In this short video clip, part of the International Federation of Airworthiness ‘Why I chose …’ series of films, Lola shares why she chose aviation engineering for her career and how her passion for airworthiness has developed.
