6th edition of the Engineers For A Day Programme is launched

On International Day of the Girl Child, which was celebrated on 11 October, the 6th edition of the Programme Engineers for a Day was launched, at the event “Shaping the Digital future”, which discussed issues such as the role of schools as agents of change for gender equality and how to attract and retain female talent in this area.

Engineers for a Day is a Government program, coordinated by INCoDe.2030 and the Commission for Citizenship and Gender Equality, and its mission is to promote, among students without a college degree, the option for engineering and technology, deconstructing the idea that these are male domains.

It is integrated in the National Strategy for Equality and Non-Discrimination – Portugal Mais Igual and, since its creation in 2017, it has already reached 12,554 young people from 7th, 8th and 9th grade and secondary education, through practical laboratory activities, role model sessions and mentoring.
