Covid-19 Update

Max are pleased to confirm that our teams are still fully operational in line with the latest government guidelines. This includes our off-site team at ONS. We do understand, however, that for many businesses and institutions this is unfortunately still not the case. We continue to wish you well during this difficult period and look forward to somewhat easier times, hopefully by Spring 2021.

If you would like to schedule a call for a future date, please complete our contact form indicating a preferred day. We have decided to freeze our prices until May 1st 2021 to ensure that our customers are not penalised by the ongoing restrictions. We may decide to extend this date further still.

In the meantime, please do take a look at our podcasts page . The passion, enthusiasm and insight from our guest speakers has been inspirational, especially given the circumstances.

Helen Close – Women’s Engineering Society

Helen Close talks about her role as Centenary Trail Project Officer for the Women's Engineering Society, working to highlight the contributions of female engineers throughout the years. Founded in 1918, the Society aims to support the education and employment of women in all areas of engineering.

The collection for WES is housed with the IET, and the Centenary Trail project celebrates the 100th anniversary of WES by expanding digital resources. Helen talks about engaging volunteers in Wikithons to increase the number of research pages for female engineers, creating an interactive map for people to see the diverse spread of where these women came from and digitizing The Woman Engineer journal which WES has published since 1919.

The project has increased interest in the history of women's engineering and has led to new donations to the collection, better representation in museums, and the commission of Blue Plaques in honor of significant female engineers.
