ICSI is delighted to formally welcome the World Federation of Engineering Organizations (WFEO), and Yetunde Holloway as its representative, onto the ICSI Board of Directors.
Founded in 1968, under the auspices of UNESCO, WFEO is the international organisation for the engineering profession. WFEO brings a global perspective through its membership that covers some 100 nations.
With this announcement, the ICSI Board now comprises the three largest engineering associations in the world, representing over 30 million engineers worldwide.
Holloway will serve as WFEO’s representative to ICSI in support of its mission objectives and activities. ICSI is thrilled by this formal appointment, which will build on a valued partnership between ICSI and WFEO. WFEO has been a key collaborator in a number of ICSI initiatives, such as the contribution to the consultation for the Mid-Term Review of the Sendai Framework and the Brunel International Lecture series.
“We are excited to have Yetunde on board and are looking forward to strengthening our relationship with WFEO and its Standing Technical Committees” said Savina Carluccio, ICSI Executive Director. “Through the addition of WFEO to our Board of Directors and the coalition, ICSI is becoming a truly global organisation with an impressive reach.”
Holloway’s role as Chair of the WFEO Women in Engineering Committee enables her to be a fantastic advocate for women in the industry. Combined with this, she will represent the interests of professional engineers around the world and brings a much-valued African perspective to the ICSI Board.
“I’m so pleased that WFEO is part of a collation that is advancing such important climate issues” said Yetunde, “the future of planet Earth can only exist within the precepts of equitable, resilient and sustainable infrastructure.’’
