Event description
Training session providing you with the skills to research, blog and present the history of women in engineering to a range of audiences

About this Event

We need you! Electrifying Women, an AHRC funded project based at the University of Leeds, needs volunteers to help us continue enhancing and sharing the history of women in engineering.

We want to give you the skills that you'll need for:

- Blogging evocative stories about women's history in engineering

- Presenting about women's history in engineering to any kinds of audience

- Researching the archives on women's history in engineering...

...so that you can help us tell the stories of the past lives of women in engineering and especially the history of the Women's Engineering Society. That way we hope to inspire more young women to find a path into professional engineering. Whether you have a little, or a lot, of time, we need as many people as possible to volunteer with us.

Run by the Electrifying Women team and taking place at Devonshire Hall in Leeds, this four hour session (with a free lunch included at the start) will offer free training on presenting, blogging and online archival research.

This session is ideal for anyone with an interest in history, women's history, and/or engineering, who wants to learn more about researching, outreach and engagement.

It will be followed by a drinks reception (6-7.30PM) at the Seoul Kitchen on the first floor of Blackwell's University Bookshop (21 Woodhouse Lane, LS2 9HJ) when we will launch our creative writing anthology over a glass of wine or two. Sign up here.
