Celebrating International Women in Engineering Day at Blue Projects: Embracing Diversity


International Women in Engineering Day (INWED), celebrated annually on June 23rd, provides a global platform to highlight the remarkable contributions of women in engineering. This day not only acknowledges the achievements of women engineers but also emphasizes the importance of diversity and inclusion in this dynamic field. By valuing our differences, the engineering industry can unlock innovative solutions and drive progress.

Engineering, by its very nature, thrives on creativity and problem-solving. Diverse teams bring a wealth of perspectives, experiences, and ideas, fostering an environment where innovation can flourish. At Blue Projects, we have always believed in the power of diversity and are committed to promoting an inclusive culture. Historically, engineering has been a male-dominated sector, but we are actively working to change that by ensuring women are well-represented and their contributions recognized.

Inclusion at Blue Projects means more than just having a diverse team; it means ensuring every voice is heard and valued. Our women engineers bring unique insights and approaches to problem-solving and project management, enriching our projects with their diverse viewpoints. This inclusive culture is not only morally right but also strategically advantageous, propelling Blue Projects to new heights.

Our diverse teams are better equipped to address the needs of our diverse client base. Engineering projects, ranging from infrastructure development to cutting-edge technological innovations, serve a wide range of communities. By including women in our engineering teams, we ensure that the diverse needs of these communities are considered and met. This approach allows us to create solutions that are not only inclusive and equitable but also effective and sustainable.

Voices from the Field

To highlight the real-world impact and importance of women in engineering, we gathered quotes from several colleagues who shared their thoughts on diversity, inclusion, and the contributions of women in the industry:

Samia Bentabet, Project Manager, France

“Inclusion means creating a space where everyone feels valued and heard. When women are part of the team, we see projects from angles that might otherwise be overlooked, leading to more comprehensive and innovative solutions.”


Veronica Pirvulescu, Project engineer, Germany

“Diversity in engineering is not just about gender; it’s about bringing together different perspectives to solve complex problems. Women in engineering bring a unique approach to problem-solving that is invaluable.”


Elena Dean, Project Director, United Kingdom:

“Women in engineering have the power to transform the industry. By valuing our differences, we can create a more dynamic and inclusive environment that fosters innovation and excellence.”


Magdalena Dubil, Design Team Lead – Architect, Poland

“Being a woman in engineering has its challenges, but it also has its rewards. At Blue Projects, I’ve found a supportive environment where my ideas are valued, and my work makes a difference.”

Roxana, Design Team Lead, Romania

“At Blue Projects, we celebrate the differences each team member brings. Women in our teams contribute to a culture of creativity and excellence that sets us apart.”


Georgiana Talaba, Junior Project Management, Romania

“Being a woman in engineering presents numerous challenges, but it also brings immense satisfaction, especially in a field traditionally seen as ‘a man’s world.’ To the young women aspiring to join this industry, my advice is to enter with confidence, ambition, and a strong work ethic.”


Vanessa Arroba, Project Manager, United States

“Despite the significance of the engineering industry in our world, the underrepresentation of female engineers is still a challenge. In a male dominated field, female brilliance and contributions often go unnoticed.
To solve this challenge however, we need to address the disparity of women in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) education to nurture a more diverse talent pipeline in engineering. Empowering woman by increasing our sense of self-worth, decision-making power, access to opportunities and resources, and ability to effect change is critical to tackle the gender gap.
By leading by example and creating an inclusive workplace that ensures respect and fairness for all individuals, Blue Projects cultivates an environment where female and male engineers can thrive as equals.”
