National Engineers Week

It may not be as widespread as National Pizza Day, but to us here at CWM, National Engineers Week is much more important. Celebrated from Feb. 21- Feb. 27th, EWeek is dedicated to ensuring a future engineering workforce by increasing awareness and interest in engineering and technology careers.

Buffalo Business First posted an article challenging us to start thinking of engineering, even before EWeek commenced, where female engineers posted photos of themselves using the hashtag "#ilooklikeanengineer" to break stereotypes generally associated with female engineers  and other technological careers. Here at CWM, we may not currently have a female engineer on our team, but we're continuously partnering with WBE firms and are advocates for the national movement to improve outreach to females in the engineering world. (Plus, we're currently conducting interviews for a civil engineer. So if you can get past our modest self plug, email info@cwm-ae.com with qualifications!). 

One way YOU can help out this EWeek is by logging on to social media on 2/24 for Global Day of the Engineer and partaking in the thunderclap! What's a thunderclap you ask? It takes the idea of a flash mob and helps spread the word by posting the same message at the same time! What are you waiting for?! Help out now by visiting: Thunderclap

As you may have recently read in the New York Real Estate Journal, CWM just celebrated our fifteenth anniversary of designing Buffalo! We couldn't have gotten this far without our outstanding Engineering Department, so let's get to know the team a little better, shall we?
