The Women in Engineering Forum 2021 is organized by the College of Engineering at Abu Dhabi University in collaboration with fib-UAE and in partnership with Abu Dhabi Municipality and several local and international authorities and engineering societies. The Forum will bring together influential women in the engineering field to share their experiences, knowledge, and skills. This year's event will highlight the contributions of female engineers to the development of sustainable smart cities before COVID-19 and the challenges that have arisen after the pandemic. In addition, the Forum will discuss the main issues facing female engineers in general, with particular reference to the region, and propose recommendations to take full advantage of the contribution of women to advance the profession and the community at large.
After the success of the Forum held virtually in 2020, with more than 500 local and international participants, the 2021 event will utilize a hybrid mode to reach a broad regional and international audience. It will feature keynote speeches and technical presentations from international speakers, local authorities, professional engineering societies, pioneering engineering companies, and universities. In addition, several panel discussions will be conducted, putting forward a road map to bridge the gender gap in various engineering fields and optimize the role of female engineers in solving industrial challenges.
The Forum is in line with the Abu Dhabi Economic Vision 2030, intending to empower women in the economy and maximize the participation of women in the workforce. It will build on the valuable outcomes of the previous three events held at Abu Dhabi University in 2018, 2019, and 2020 (virtual).
