women in engineeringThe Women's Engineering Society is launching the first-ever National Women in Engineering Day (NWED), organised to celebrate their 95th anniversary.

The event, to be held on 23 June, aims to help raise the profile of engineering to girls, and celebrating the achievements of women in engineering.
 
Details of the day and a list of ideas is available on the WES website, and a full resource pack will be available very soon to download containing background information, press release templates, statistics, stickers, posters, schools resources and further information to help you decide how you can support the day. And once you have decided, please return the details of your support to WES, where we will be compiling this information.
 
Look out too for the WES flagship event on Women in Engineering, to take place at IMechE in London on 23 June where speakers already confirmed include Professor John Perkins, Ruth Spellman and speakers from the Royal Society, the Royal Academy of Engineering, WISE, MBDA and the JCB University Technical College.
