The Women's Engineering Society is a professional, not-for-profit network of women engineers, scientists and technologists offering inspiration, support and professional development. Working in partnership, we campaign to encourage women to participate and achieve as engineers, scientists and as leaders.
WES has three primary aims:
- Women: Support women to achieve their potential as engineers, applied scientists and leaders and to reward excellence.
- Education: Encourage and promote the education, study and application of engineering.
- Sustainability: Work with organisations and influencers to promote gender diversity and equality in the workplace and sustain the historic legacy and future effectiveness of the Womens Engineering Society.
Strategy and Business Plan
We are a Charity and a Limited Company, and are governed by a Council and Executive Board according to our Memorandum of Articles. We have individual and Company Members and produce a quarterly printed journal, The Woman Engineer, as well as a monthly e-newsletter.
2015 is our 96th Year- we started life after World War I in 1919 when the pioneering women who worked in engineering and technical roles during the War campaigned to retain these roles when the war ended. We are a continually evolving organisation and our plans are described in our Business Plan (PDF).
