International Women’s Day - Choose to Challenge

International Women’s Day is March 8, 2021. This year’s theme is Choose to Challenge. "Clearly women at all levels contribute to a higher manner to an organization achieving its high goals," said Dwain Celistan, an author of a white paper titled Making Diversity Work: Changing times, mindsets and strategies in the technology and professional services industries. "It's the organization's willingness to enable women in all levels to reach their capabilities."

The electrical industry historically has been more male dominated and in recent years has been challenged to increase the number of women coming into the industry.

Egret created an annual Women in Industry newsletter from 2005 - 2013 and again in 2018. In honor of International Women’s Day we took a look at the numbers again.

Percentage of women attendance each year at the National NAED:
2005 – 6.7%
2006 – 5.8%
2007 – 5.8%
2008 – 6.5%
2009 – 7.9%
2010 – 8.3%
2011 – 7.4%
2012 – 8.4%
2013 – 9.2%
2018 – 10%
2019 – 13%
