What our delegates said last year

"Congratulations to all at WISE on a fantastically successful conference and awards. Both events highlighted the huge achievements of women in science and engineering while also illuminating the substantial barriers that prevent more women from entering and enriching these fields."

Catherine Mayer, Women’s Equality Party

"I am happy to see such great success and was impressed at the conference that there were so many young women in attendance!"

Dr Sandra Magnus, American Engineer and NASA Astronaut

"I just want to say huge congratulations on the entire event last week. It all went really well and it's one of the only conferences I've been to that has stuck to its timings! I'm very impressed."

Jennifer Walsh-O'Donovan, Winner of the WISE Hero Award

“Just wanted to congratulate you on a brilliant conference and awards ceremony. You moved mountains and the whole thing was a triumph.”

Caroline le Fevre, Lefevre Media

"Congratulations on the highly energetic event on Thursday, I very much enjoyed it!"

Alexandra Milsom, NHS ENGLAND
