Meg becomes Patron of Women’s Engineering Society

Wednesday, April 24, 2013

Meg Munn MP has accepted an invitation to become Patron of the Women’s Engineering Society (WES), the oldest women’s engineering organisation in the world, which works to increase gender diversity in the engineering profession. She recently met Milada Williams, (WES President), and Dawn Bonfield, (WES Vice President), to discuss how she will take forward this role.

Meg will work with the Society to encourage more female students studying science, technology, engineering and maths subjects to go on to careers in these professions after graduating. Currently less than half of female graduates who have studied these subjects do so.  Working together, the Society and Meg will be supporting companies and organisations that increase gender diversity in their workforce, and launch a new awareness day to celebrate Women in Engineering in June 2014, which will mark the 95th anniversary of the Women’s Engineering Society.

Meg said:

“I am delighted to become Patron of the Women’s Engineering Society and I am looking forward to working with them. We know that new innovations that will help us to live longer and improve our quality of life will come from the next generation of scientists, technologists and engineers.  Yet, we also know that there are job vacancies in these fields, where women continue to be underrepresented.  The Women’s Engineering Society will play a vital role in tackling these issues and ensuring that the situation changes for the better.”

Dawn Bonfield, WES Vice President, said:

“We know that more women are needed in engineering to increase the thought diversity that is necessary to solve the global engineering challenges we face as a society.  One of the challenges is to get the message over to the younger generation of girls that engineering is a great career to follow.”
