Dawn Childs
President @Women's Engineering Society (WES)
WES has recently transitioned from a volunteer-led organisation to a not-for-profit SME, responding to the growing demand for their services. WES supports and inspires women to achieve as engineers, scientists and as leaders; encourages the education of engineering; and supports companies with gender diversity and inclusion. Their vision is a nation in which women are as likely as men to choose to study and work in engineering, and one in which there are enough engineers to meet a growing demand.

Since 'retiring' from performing aged thirty David has work as an events manager, firstly at the House of Commons and more recently for the Royal Horticultural Society. In his spare time David is currently a soloist with the London Gay Men's Chorus and co-created the 'Hobbies for Health' blog, as well as being a keen gardener.
