International Latina Engineer Week
In 2020 Diana Iracheta founded International Latina Engineer Week! This was a whole week celebration of Latinas in STEM and engineering all around the world. Celebrated every year on early October.
The purpose behind this event is to showcase all of the Latinas that make up engineering, as well as to connect, motivate and inspire them.
This week long event is full of resources, live sessions, Q&A with Latina engineering students and professionals, networking events, giveaways, and scholarships!
During ILEW2020 we were able to award two $1,000 USD scholarships to two latinas in engineering.
Deisy Martinez – Studying Aerospace Engineering
Maria Pena – Studying Civil Engineering
