WES Annual Conference

WES Annual Conference


The WES Annual Conference is a one-day annual event, taking place in spring time each year. It is aimed at our professional and senior members, together with other interested individuals with the focus being on continued professional development within an engineering career (or allied sector).

In 2017 we had over 130 attendees from various disciplines and organisations and the speakers ranged from talking about flexible working to returnship programmes and how to lead and create impact.


WES' Centenary Annual Conference: Celebrating the Past, Transforming the Future on Friday 15 March 2019, 9:30 - 16:00 (followed by a drinks reception) at the RAF Museum, London.

Join us for a once in a lifetime opportunity to celebrate 100 years of the Women's Engineering Society whilst boosting your Continued Professional Development. Get involved in the debate about how we can face the challenges for the next 100 years, and be part of the solution.
