STICK Conference 2019

100 Years of Women in Engineering

6th November
at Glasgow Women’s Library

2019 marks the centenary of the Women’s Engineering Society (WES). The Society was founded to support women engineers who, although welcomed into the profession during World War One, were often told “not to get comfortable” and came under pressure at the end of the war to leave the workforce to release jobs for men returning from the forces. The Women’s Engineering Society sought to resist this pressure, but also to promote engineering as a rewarding job for women as well as men.

The STICK conference seeks to celebrate 100 years of WES and women in engineering. We are looking for speakers on this topic that will celebrate the successes of women in engineering both past and present, explore the challenges around telling these stories and engage in the debate.

Please see the call for papers for more details.
