Women in Engineering (WomEng), is a recognized non-profit organization working over the last ten years to develop the next generation of engineering leaders in society.

Through its proactive, needs driven bottom up approach, WomEng has been instrumental in developing strong female engineering talent pipelines. Historically, WomEng has run more programs in South Africa, with WomEng Kenya rolling out programs in 2014. This dynamic organisation is set to roll out in other countries, especially in Africa, as an appropriate solution to the skills needs on the continent.


GirlEng aims to inform and encourage young minds to enter into the fascinating world of engineering from the schooling stage, for them to start their journey of changing the world one step at a time.


The WomEng Fellowship caters for both providing the top female engineering students with the necessary life and business skills to succeed in industry, as well as a platform for innovative thinking through the technical challenge.


Catering to engineering professionals WomEng creates a platform for industry networking, discussions on pertinent topics within the industry, workshops and opportunities in the field.
