Event description
Siemens and WES joint networking and celebration event in which we celebrate 2019 as a key milestone year for both organisations.

About this Event

2019 is a key milestone year for both Siemens and WES. Join us as we hold a joint celebratory event to mark the WES centenary year and 130 years since the Siemens C.A Parsons factory was established. Our guest speaker will be Meshi Taka Equality, Diversity and Inclusion champion for the north east branch of the Institution of Civil Engineers.

Meshi grew up in Cameroon where she had a deep appreciation of the importance of water and sanitation and how it can impact life. Coupled with her keen interest in problem solving and STEM, this led to her becoming a Chartered Civil Engineer in the water sector. Meshi's dream of becoming an engineer in Cameroon seemed unrealistic in a culture where value is predominantly put on the male children. Today she is a champion of STEM, equality, diversity and inclusion in the work place.

You will also hear from speakers charting the history of WES and Siemens and looking forward at the future of engineering. There will be ample opportunity for networking.

Both men and women engineers are welcome at the event, as well as supporters of women in engineering.

Registration will open at 5.30pm with the event commencing at 6pm. There is ample car parking onsite. If you have any questions, please contact Cath Heslop at cath.heslop@wes.org.uk
