We are delighted to be working with the Women's Engineering Society advising on storytelling and design in the lead up to their centenary celebrations. They were founded in 1919 when a group of women engineers who had made a significant contribution to the war effort objected to being dispatched back to the kitchen once the war was over.

They decided to campaign instead to support more women working in engineering. Their founders had close links to the suffragette movement and even today WES continues to use the suffragette colours - Green White Violet - standing for Give Women Votes!
