The Women's Engineering Society and COVID-19
During these unprecedented times, we would like to reassure you that the Women's Engineering Society (WES) remains focused on our work supporting & promoting women in engineering and allied disciplines.
We continue to support our Members, Partners and Sponsors, finding ways to adapt to your changing needs in the current situation. We recognise that some of you may be experiencing challenges you didn't foresee in your careers. Whether you find yourself working longer hours, working or studying from home, are furloughed, or possibly even out of work, WES is here to support you. We aim to provide our Members with a network of like-minded people and potential allies, colleagues and friends through local networks and the central WES team. Click here to find out ways that WES can support its Members at this time.
We continue to collaborate with our Partners via virtual platforms, bringing them together to discuss the challenges they are facing. We are particularly proud of our Partners showing their commitment to defeating the Coronavirus. The following have all been featured in the media, helping support the NHS and the government in this crisis: Airbus, BAE Systems, Meggitt, Mott MacDonald, National Grid, Thales, Transport for London and many more. We are also proud of all our unsung heroes who continue to keep the world operating in these trying times. Not all companies can be at the forefront of the fight but their efforts should still be recognised.
If you have a story you would like to share with us as a WES Member, Partner or Sponsor, please email: Beatrice.Pryor@wes.org.uk as she would love to hear from you.
The WES team is following government advice and working from home. If you need to speak to a member of the team please visit our contacts page here to find details of the person you would like to talk to.
We wish you all the best, please keep well and stay safe,
The WES team.
