WISE Alumni - Where are they now?
2 August 2017
The photos above show the very first WISE programme run in 1979 at Essex University. They were brought to our attention by WISE members Thales and show the 40 sixth-form girls who attended the programme which was organised jointly by GEC and the Engineering Industry Training Board, as a pilot for a bigger programme of events run in 1980.
Recognise yourself or anyone else on the photos? Please let us know, we'd love to find out what happened to the girls who attended the programme 38 years ago!
Over the years, WISE summer school programmes have played a key role in shaping and starting the careers of prominent women in STEM.
"Thanks very much to the WISE programme all the way back in 1984, for giving me that extra little bit of confidence that has allowed me to undertake this amazing and diverse career."
Dr Sarah House, Independent Consultant / Public Health Engineer
