Neither rain, nor sleet nor global pandemic can stop Fluor engineers from executing a monumental EWeek celebration! Despite COVID-19 restrictions, Fluor employees showcased their passion for engineering, embracing the challenge of a virtual celebration during EWeek on February 21-27, 2021.
Fluor volunteers shared their time virtually with local schools and charitable organizations to spark student interest in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) fields. Hundreds of volunteers around the globe reached almost 3,000 students with more than 5,000 hours of STEM enrichment.
Mariki Mackenzie and Mark van Ginhoven, global Engineers Week co-chairs, said, "We'd like to thank the global EWeek committee as well as all of the local office champions from around the world for making this virtual EWeek campaign a success! We knew that this would be a year like no other, but the team rose to the challenge and delivered unique and engaging events. Engineering is a core element of Fluor’s DNA, and we appreciate all the people that joined us in celebrating both engineers and engineering as we 'Imagine Tomorrow' together."
Fluor’s SoCal office leveraged a virtual environment to extend their reach to remote-learning students during EWeek.
