Here’s what those who attended last year had to say:

Before the conference I was unsure of which was the ‘right’ career path to take, and whether I wanted to stay within the engineering sector. After listening to the enthusiasm of these successful woman engineers, I am certain that I will stay in engineering, which offers endless opportunities”  – Georgina Hunter

“The WES Student conference was a great experience where I attended inspirational talks, took part in workshops to improve vital skills required in engineering and network with both students and professionals” – Gemma Rutter
