Ramla Qureshi

Founder and CEO, Women Engineers Pakistan (WEP)

Deeply moved by the appalling gender disparity in STEM fields, Ramla - a Fulbright Scholar - initiated Women Engineers Pakistan (WEP): a grass-roots organization catalyzing participation and enabling retention of women in STEM fields, now transformed into a nationwide movement, buttressed by the overwhelming support of women all over the globe. Mirroring Ramla's passion, WEP now works at leveling the playing field for women in STEM, helping recruit more diverse talent, and advocating for better, safer workplaces within Pakistan. When not advocating for gender equality, she is a structural and earthquake engineer, and a PhD researcher for structural safety and resilience.
