CEO Lynn Cooper on International Women’s Day

As today is International Women’s Day our CEO, Lynn Cooper has written a few words…

On International Women’s Day I’m celebrating the fact that almost 50% of our Board (6/14) are women and from five different Nations – Scotland, England, Northern Ireland, Wales and France – and more than 50% of this year’s Rising Stars are women.

However in comparison to the total number of women working in water and our Institute’s female members, we have significantly fewer. Do you think that we could we offer more for women, particularly mid-career?

If you are a woman in water with a story or an idea to share please get in touch by contacting and together let’s support women in water!

Please join us for our One Day Engineering Conference (02/04/19) with an all woman speaking programme! Book Now to show your support for #womeninengineering!
