WES, founded in 1919 a small committee was drawn from the
National Council of Women, which was created during the
1914-18 war to get women into work, releasing men for the
armed forces. This group of influential women had government
backing to support women engineers who, although welcomed
into the profession during world war 1, were under pressure
at the end of the war to leave the workforce to release
jobs for men returning from the forces. These women founded
WES, not only to resist this pressure, but also to promote
engineering as a rewarding job for women as well as men.
At today’s lunch we would also like to celebrate our apprentices’ success
at having chosen a career path which is unfortunately still male
dominated. However, things are changing and our apprentices
here today both past and present are testament to that.
