Profile: WES (Women in STEM)

WES is a network of female engineers, technologists and scientists offering both support and professional development opportunities. The Women's Engineering Society is a charity and a professional 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.

Thir ‘She’s an engineer...' section shows established women in STEM positions and explains what they do in more detail. 

Their vision is ‘a nation in which women are as likely as men to choose to study and work in engineering, and one in which there are enough engineers to meet a growing demand' and their mission is ‘Inspiring and supporting girls and women to achieve their potential as engineers, applied scientists and technical leaders. To work collaboratively to assist educators, employers and influencers in creating a diverse engineering community.’

And the following 3 objectives:

  1. Women: Support women to achieve their potential as engineers, applied scientists and leaders and to reward excellence.
  2. Education: Encourage and promote the education, study and application of engineering.
  3. 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 Women’s Engineering Society.’
