Every few years the Happold Foundation invites inspirational speakers to give the Happold Lecture on a topical subject of importance to engineering and the built environment. In 2020, to mark the centenary of the Women’s Engineering Society, the Happold Lecture will be in association with WES.
The Happold Foundation and WES would be delighted if you could join us for an evening of insight and inspiration in conversation with Yewande Akinola MBE, Dawn Bonfield MBE, Dr Ellie Cosgrave and Dr Priti Parikh.
Marking 100 years of the Women’s Engineering Society, these four remarkable engineers will discuss the challenges and opportunities that the next 100 years will bring, and what the engineering and built environment professions will look like in the future. Please join us to hear their insights and take part in this important conversation about shaping the future of engineering and the built environment.
The Happold Lecture is a lecture series which aims to follow in the footsteps of the Happold Medal Lecture series which started in 1998 by the Happold Trust and the Construction Industry Council (CIC). Previous Happold Lecture and Medal speakers have included Harriet Tregoning, Emily Shuckburgh, Sir Crispin Tickell, Amory Lovins, Tessa Tennant, Sir Howard Bernstein, Sir Peter Hall, Patrick Bellew, Paul Morrell, Keith Clarke and Robin Nicolson.
