We’ve finally finished our Annual Report for this year, and are really happy to be able to share it with our supporters. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you wish to request a copy! There are soft and hard copies available.
In other news, an EDM (Early Day Motion) was recently lodged in the UK Parliament in support of our work: https://www.parliament.uk/edm/2016-17/500
Although these EDMs are not often brought into debate, it is amazing to know that our project has been publicised here and hopefully will bring in some further interest.
Half of the FemEng Glasgow Team were lucky enough to attend the IESIS James Watt Dinner 2016 last weekend, hosted by Karen Dinardo and featuring the new inductees to the Scottish Engineering Hall of Fame. Speakers included Sir Duncan Michael (Arup) and James Goodfellow, inventor of the ATM and PIN!
Susan Scurlock of Primary Engineer was also awarded an Honourary Fellowship of IESIS, and the team were able to meet her daughter Jennifer who leads Primary Engineer activities in Scotland. Future collaborations are planned with FemEng and Primary Engineer working together to enhance the work of both organisations.
In Glasgow we will be holding an information session soon for individuals interested in joining the 2017 team, with applications before Christmas. Until then, the FemEng committee are pursuing their other initiatives in Scotland and Dublin.
