International Women in Engineering Day
"New Normal" Photo Exhibit
International Women in Engineering Day began seven years ago with a simple mission: to raise the profile and awareness of women in engineering, and help bring much needed attention to all of the exciting career opportunities available to women and girls.
In years past, we have held internal celebrations and external events, all of which were supported with social media campaigns. This year, we wanted to showcase the essence of our women engineers “new normal” due to COVID-19, sharing with us one specific image and picture that best depicts their life nearly 120 days into a completely distributed team (and shelter in place) environment brought on by coronavirus.
Curated by our talented Buenos Aires-based Visual Designer, Paula Fernandez, the photos were all captured via Zoom, demonstrating a beautiful and arresting mosaic that demonstrates how Cognizant Softvision women engineers work, how they play, how they teach, how they cope, and how they take care of themselves and their families during these difficult times. The “New Normal,” can be accessed here:
