Event description

Description



How long have women been involved in engineering? The UK Women’s Engineering Society, the first of its kind in the world, is now celebrating its centenary!

Our lecture looks at how the First World War created new opportunities for women to participate, as did the exciting new technologies of electrical power and lighting a whole generation earlier.

After the lecture there will be an opportunity for questions and discussion of how understanding the Women’s Engineering Society’s first hundred years might help to diversify recruitment to engineering today.
