54 Years of Working to Address Gender Diversity in Engineering

Over 50 years ago, brilliant British engineer Dr Cosby Smallpeice ploughed £1.6m of his personal fortune into setting up The Smallpeice Trust, to give young people, especially girls, the role models and experiences to fuel their passion for engineering. With International Women in Engineering Day (#INWED20) on the horizon, Dr Kevin P Stenson, chief executive at The Smallpeice Trust, continues to drive the charity’s mission and provides us with an update on its work and the results.



During these unprecedented times, WES remains very much open and focused on our work supporting and promoting women engineers. WES staff are working from home following the government's directive, and will continue to do so until advised otherwise.   The best way to contact us is via email, a list of staff email addresses can be found here.  Alternatively, our main phone number 01438 765506 will continue to be monitored.

In the meantime, keep safe.

From the WES team.
