About WES - who we are
About WES - who we are
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.
2009 was our 90th Celebration Year- we started life after World War I in 1919. We are a continually evolving organisation and our plans are described in our Business Plan (PDF), which is currently under review.
At the bottom of this page is a list of recent publications and advertising material created by WES for use at science fairs, expos, school careers fairs etc. Please contact the WES office (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you would like us to send you any of this material for promotional use.
