WES Student Groups Meeting

WES Student Groups were invited to meet at UCL in London on Wednesday 28th June. The meeting was attended by WES CEO Kirsten Bodley, President Benita Mehra, Office Manager Cath Heslop and Universities and Student Groups Liaison Jo Douglas.

To begin with Jo and Kirsten introduced WES to the group, discussing the history of WES and WES Student Groups, as well as talking about what WES are doing today and their plans for the centenary. The group then heard about the very successful careers fair organised by Loughborough University and the volunteering trip to Rwanda that University of Glasgow arranged. Then the student groups discussed how WES can best support them and what changes they would like to see at the WES student conferences. Overall the meeting was very productive, and all of us at WES can't wait to see what the student groups get up to next year!
WES Young Members' Board

What the YMB got up during INWED 2017! 

The YMB were involved in a variety of activities either in their respective businesses or outwith, here are some of the things we got up to and our feelings on INWED.... 

Caroline (SSE) took part in a SSE produced video aiming to bust some of the myths associated with women in engineering which launched on INWED. She also sat on a panel at the SSE headquarters in Perth where she and some of her colleagues (male and female) answered questions and networked with pupils from local schools. 

Maeve (Instron) attended the Instron coffee morning which was held at their European headquarters and was attended by over 80 employees. They played a fun game of 'Guess the Inventor' where we asked participants to match the inventor with the invention. Inventions included Instron products, allowing the work of female engineers at Instron to be recognised, but it also included inventions that changed the world. Did you know that a woman invented computer programming?  
Maeve said... I love how INWED provides the opportunity to get people talking about the gender diversity gap in engineering, the day is so important!  

Jo (Smallpiece Trust) did a radio interview for BBC Leicester. The 
presenter started by asking listeners to think of an engineer in their head, what they are wearing, what are they holding, and then can you give HIM a name... and therein lies the problem! They chatted about perceptions/misconceptions of engineering, how the problems start at school with STEM subjects being less "sexy", and if it's a career that someone could retrain for later in life. 
Jo says... It's great to challenge peoples perceptions about engineering, and INWED is a brilliant platform to attract more attention to this!  

Yasmin (EDF) started off by giving a talk about INWED and WES at Cundall, an engineering consultancy. She then dashed off to the IMechE to fight for my place on a boat sailing away from the apocalypse. She had to convince a group of school students, and the webinar audience, that my engineering skills were more useful in our new world than the skills of the 5 engineers sat around me. Unfortunately, Yasmin didn't survive, but she did go on to have a great afternoon tea at the announcement of the Telegraph Top 50 Women in Engineering under 35 at the ICE. 
Yasmin said.... 'I didn't survive the apocalypse, but I did teach young people about energy! 

Holly (Scottish Power) helped organise 3 breakfast networking events that ran simultaneously across the UK at different Scottish Power locations. Each of the events was attended by employees with a variety of skill types and at different career stages as well as a mixture of males and females. Holly spoke at the Glasgow and gave an overview on WES and INWED to the 80 attendees.
Holly said... INWED allowed men and women from across different businesses and locations to have some in depth discussions on diversity, share best practice and identify areas where we all could improve. 

We have some new faces on the YMB! 

The YMB are excited to announce that we have 3 new members; Kirsty McDermott from National Grid, Deborah Harris from Rolls Royce, and Laura Davies from Altran UK. We received over 40 applications of very high standard and would like to thank everyone who took the time to apply for a position on the board. The YMB would also like to thank Emma England, Emma Herbert and Sharon Ross for their contribution to WES during their time on the board.
WES Heart of England Cluster

Visit to RSC Scenic Workshops 27 June 2017

Seven WES members (and daughters) enjoyed an informative visit to the Royal Shakespeare Company scenic workshops in Stratford on Avon.

Kindly hosted by Gilly Leefe, the tour began in the drawing office where scale models of the designer's concept are converted into drawings which are brought to life in the workshops. We also visited the props storage area (including 'dead bodies' and alligators), the scenic workshop (carpentry), scenic art workshop (where they paint the set),  property workshop(where they make "props", including an automated baby and where they are creating a bespoke forklift truck for a future production), the scenic engineering workshop (metal fabrication), and finally Gilly's domain of control systems engineering for props, sets, doors and trapdoors. 

Gilly's knowledge and enthusiasm were impressive - many thanks to her for the visit.
WES Herts & Beds Cluster

Women's Networks and Discussions Guest Speaker and Calibration Engineer from Bosch, Veronica Perez, attended this month's cluster meeting to share her experience on women's networks, including the history of 'women@bosch'. 

At the University of Hertfordshire where the talk was based, the information Veronica shared was invaluable and provided our members with a key insight into forming their own network groups and the challenges faced. With a good location and close-networking, conversation was soon flowing! 

WES Herts & Beds Cluster look forward to repeat events! For any future details on the WES Herts & Beds cluster events please see our Facebook page!
WES Surrey and Sussex Cluster

VICTOR HUGO once famously remarked: "No power on earth can resist an idea whose time has come".

Since the Industrial Revolution, technology has played a unique role in powering growth and transforming economies. Catalysed by the internet, the pace of technological change and scientific progress is accelerating, creating the new industries of the future.

We are inviting the scientists, engineers, entrepreneurs and visionaries who are building the "Industries of the Future", to better understand where new wealth will be created, whilst also examining the impact on the economy and society.

The format will be a series of Codex Talks. A Codex Talk is a concise 15 minute presentation from a speaker with the aim of answering a set question related to their industry or technology area. After 15 minutes, the speaker will be asked to make a bold prediction about their industry. For the benefits of the live audience, a Q&A will take place overseen by a moderator with all the speakers in the session.

A Codex Talk will give the audience something they can walk away with: valuable insights, actionable information, fresh perspectives, and renewed optimism.

'The World's Top 50 Innovators from the Industries of the Future' series is to be staged by Codex, International Business Leaders Network and WES is an Event Partner.

Join the Conversation

Katherine Cecil is conducting a social justice research project exploring (in)visibility, (in)equity and access to STEM from the perspective of Black women active in STEM. She is currently reaching out to women of African and Caribbean decent who are active in STEM to see if they would like to have a conversation with her about their experiences. Conversations usually last around 30 to 90 minutes.

Katherine is a PhD candidate based in the Department of Science and Technology Studies at University College London. Her research aims to provide a space where resources can be developed, revised, and shared so as to collectively build strategies for survival, resistance and transformation within the STEM community for people from all marginalised groups.

The research is explained in more detail and you can Join the Conversation here.
Celebration of International Women in Engineering Day at King Edward VII School 

On Friday 23 July, King Edward VII School Sheffield hosted an exciting event for 75 female Y7-Y9 students from across South Yorkshire to meet female experts in the fields of Computer Science 
and Engineering, to celebrate International Women in Engineering Day 2017. The event was organised by non-profit social enterprise Gaia Innovation and was sponsored by ARM UK, the world's leader in semiconductor Intellectual Property. 

The day began with keynote speeches from three professionals holding very different roles in engineering. Antony Harris, Engineering Director at ARM UK, opened the event with a talk about ARM and the importance of gender balance in the engineering sector. This was followed by an inspiring speech from Andrea Catlow, a Finalist in this year's First Women Awards and the Site Operations Director at Frontier Pitts, the leading British manufacturer of blockers, barriers and gates. The girls particularly enjoyed Andrea's personal career story, and hearing about how she does not compromise her femininity whilst working in a stereotypically make role, choosing to combine her hard hat and steel capped boots with dresses and painted finger nails. Finally a different perspective was offered by Maha Kahn, Graduate Energy Consultant at ARUP, a multinational professional services firm. Maha encouraged the girls to have the courage to follow their passion and study the subjects and pursue careers in areas that truly interested them, rather than conforming to any female stereotypes. 

A lively Career Speed Networking event then enabled the students to engage in small groups with fourteen female business professionals and academics, and ask them questions about their careers, the rewards available and what they enjoy most about their jobs. Many of these volunteers were Women in Engineering Society (WES) ambassadors. 

Students also took part in fun hands-on engineering activities such as building solar powered cars, engaging with robotics and using coding to locate resources on their 'Mission to Mars'. All the participants reported that the day had increased their knowledge of careers in engineering and computer science.
Pentaxia supports INWED17 

To mark International Women in Engineering Day on 23 June 2017, Derby-based composites manufacturer Pentaxia launched a social media campaign, titled #GoForIt, to help encourage girls and women to pursue careers in engineering.

Project engineer Grace Atkinson, design engineer Kenzie Myers and composite laminator Maria Parkes pioneered the campaign showcasing their career highlights and sharing their advice in blogs and on Twitter throughout International Women in Engineering Day.
Cranfield and Boeing inspire female students to 'Aim High' for International Women in Engineering Day

In support of International Women in Engineering Day, Cranfield teamed up with Boeing and other industry partners to host 'Aim High' on the 29 June 2017, an engineering careers showcase for young female students.

Girls aged 12 to 17 from local schools, including Samuel Whitbread Academy, Bedford Girls School and Holywell Middle School, visited the University to meet researchers, academics and students as well as members of industry including Boeing, Marshalls Aerospace and Defence Group, Renault F1 sports team and Mott MacDonald.
Interactive workshops focused on careers as diverse as space, cyber security, drones, flight dynamics, advanced motorsport, energy systems and manufacturing. The professionals provided information about why working in engineering is a great career, explaining how they got to where they are and providing advice 'to my 14-year-old self'.

Tours were conducted to the University's engineering research areas including the Intelligent Mobility Engineering Centre, where pupils experienced Formula 1 simulators, and the Safety and Accident Investigation laboratory, where the University's work in aviation safety was awarded a Queen's Anniversary Prize in 2011.

Later in the day, a panel discussion and industry networking event explored: 'What industry could do to recruit and retain more women engineers'. Speakers included representatives from Virgin Atlantic, the Government's Air Accident Investigation Board, Boeing and GKN Aerospace.
