Last May, it felt like we broke records when we had more than 20 women attend our Women in Fluid Power panel discussion at our Fluid Power Technology Conference. And later that year, our sister publication created its inaugural Women in Engineering issue, where we featured amazing women engineers at the companies that design and make the machines of today and tomorrow.
This year, four of the 12 recipients of the NFPA Education and Technology Foundation scholarships were young women. In 2018, only 2 of 13 were women. Doubling that number in a year is a significant achievement in and of itself.
