A Centenary Celebration: Women's Engineering Society Membership

This call invites applications from both male and female researchers who are the Principle Investigator (PI) in receipt of a live engineering grant from the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) to become members of the Women’s Engineering Society (WES) in the period May 2019-May 2020.

In celebration of the centenary of the Women’s Engineering Society (WES), EPSRC, as a not-for-profit partner of the WES, will provide ten current Principle Investigators (PI) (both male and female) of EPSRC engineering grants a 12 month membership to the society, to enhance and develop their understanding of equality and diversity in engineering and engage with EPSRC on ED&I issues in Engineering.

This opportunity will provide the applicant with all of the benefits of a WES membership, as well as closer engagement with EPSRC on ED&I and in particular, gender issues in engineering. They will be expected to advocate creatively for both EPSRC and WES. EPSRC will hold a cohort meeting which will enable the successful applicants to share their experiences, knowledge, and best practice.
