The Women's Engineering Society (WES) is a charity and limited company, founded in 1919 to support women in engineering.
To support women in engineering to fulfil their potential and support the engineering industry to be inclusive.
Every employee and volunteer is a custodian of our history, and a contributor to our future. We’re collaborative, empowered, and inclusive.
Everything we do is focused on our Members and on advancing our vision and mission.
As well as a monthly e-newsletter and quarterly journal (The Woman Engineer), we founded International Women in Engineering Day (INWED). Held on 23 June each year, this international awareness campaign raises the profile of women in engineering and focuses attention on the amazing career opportunities in this exciting industry.
We have a wide range of events, awards, campaigns, projects, programmes and activities that support and encourage women engineers at all stages of their careers.
