On the 6th June the WES London Cluster will be running a warm-up Women in STEM Wikithon in preparation to the WES Centenary celebrations in 2019!
The event will start with an inspirational talk from Dr. Jess Wade, postdoctoral researcher at Imperial College London, Wikipedia editor, and WES council member. Then, Dr. Alice White, Wikimedian in Residence at the Wellcome Collection, will provide some guidance on how to edit Wikipedia and enhance your digital skills.
Many of the very same women who campaigned for the vote 100 years ago went on to set up the Women’s Engineering Society a year later in 1919, and WES is proud to take part in the PROCESSIONS marches on Sunday 10th June in London and Edinburgh. https://www.processions.co.uk/
Join us for an evening of lively discussion and celebration of women in technical engineering roles to commemorate International Women in Engineering Day (INWED) 2018. Our distinguished panel will debate a range of topics relating to women in engineering, with ample opportunity for questions from the audience.
