WES Clusters

WES regional activity is organised through a network of Clusters run by WES members throughout the UK, it aims to re-invigorate the regions of the UK, increase the number of women engineers we can reach and support, encourage girls into engineering, help Engineering Companies improve their diversity agenda, and generally increase our strength and influence at a local level.

Want to get in touch with our regional representative in your area?  See the list below, many have social media sites too.
