Engineering is the ability to apply scientific knowledge in a practical way in order to produce new uses. Since its existence, the engineering area has been predominantly populated by men, but currently, with the development of society and the diversity of areas, we see a significant increase in the role of women.
On this International Day of Women in Engineering (June 23), created by the Women’s Engineering Society (WES) of the United Kingdom, we at Cesbe are committed to encouraging and inspiring more women to follow the path of engineering and make a difference in the world with their technical and professional capabilities.
“I believe that each space an engineer occupies is a step further for women in this area. Above all, we want to deliver value and contribute to the development of society”, says Raquel Busato, environmental engineer and Environmental HSE analyst at Cesbe.
Our civil engineer and coordinator of Proposals and Budgets, Roberta Cruzeta, has already overcome challenges and is now reaping good results from her professional journey, in addition to inspiring more women. “I feel proud to have built a solid career. Today, I know that I found my place and I am grateful to be able to be an example of an accomplished professional and a reference for girls who want to enter engineering in the future.”
For our Occupational Safety Engineer, Aurizelia Cardoso Nogueira, “working at Cesbe has been a great opportunity for professional growth, as I manage to put my knowledge and experiences into practice. In addition, every day I learn more from the policies that the company has implemented”, she highlights. .
“I am proud to be able to seek my representation with professionalism and dedication. I love to see that, today, the woman engineer has already left the office and is glowing with their boots and helmets on the construction sites”, observes Rafaela Wosniack, our Equipment Analyst at the DMV.
Women who made history – For Raquel Busato, her inspiration is Rejane Afonso. “She was the first engineer in Brazil to manage a cement factory, in 2010. Rejane is a specialist in co-processing and has made important contributions in the environmental area, especially in the area of waste management”, she emphasizes .
Another example of a woman in engineering is Enedina Alves Marques. She was the first black woman to be an engineer in Brazil and the first woman to graduate in engineering in Paraná, in 1945. “She is my inspiration, as I know that she was not carried away by the prejudices and the political scenario at the time, in addition to having broken several taboos and paradigms”, says Gabriela Arruda, Project Management analyst at Cesbe.
