ICE chief joins WISE board

Nick Baveystock, Director General of the Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE) has joined the board of WISE (Women in Science and Engineering) as a Non Executive Director.

Commenting on the appointment Trudy Norris-Grey, Chair of the WISE Board, said: ‘Fewer than 1 in 10 of Britain’s engineers are women, the lowest proportion in Europe. This makes no sense at all for an industry facing a skills shortage. I know that Nick feels as passionately about this issue as we do and his skills, experience and contacts will be a real asset to the WISE board.’
