Created by the Women’s Engineering Society (WES) to support and inspire more young women to become engineers, scientists and leaders.

We interviewed Waterman’s Eleri Paterson Hughes, Graduate Air Quality Consultant, Hiba Talmoust, Graduate Sustainability Consultant, and Laura Smith, Transport Planning Consultant, alongside two Senior MEP Project Surveyors from Alinea Consulting, Hannah Reynolds and Victoria Caines, on location at our exceptional Warwick Court refurbishment project in London as they shared an inspirational insight into their careers for #INWED22.
