Celebrating International Women in Engineering Day 2024 (INWED24)

25 Jun 2024 9:00 AM | Anonymous

As part of our celebrations for the International Women in Engineering Day 2024, we would like to remember the great achievement of one of our Professional Members and a Member of our Professional Board and a dedicated volunteer, Veronica Warner. Veronica is the Chief Welding Engineer based at Babcock International’s Devonport facility in Plymouth, and in November 2023 she became the first woman to win the EWF Best European Welding Coordinator!

The award was presented at EWF’s Annual General Assembly held in November 2023 in Lisbon demonstrating Veronica’s skills and determination in delivering the responsibilities of a Welding Coordinator in accordance with standards such as ISO 3834, EN 15085 or EN 1090.

This year’s theme for INWED24 is “Enhanced by Engineering” and Veronica has demonstrated her ability to combine academic learning and experience within the workplace to translate that knowledge into efficient processes which can enhance the outcome and quality of businesses.

Veronica is not only a competent engineer, but is also keen to aid in the development of others which is demonstrated via engagement with STEM activities and indeed via her volunteer contributions to The Welding Institute as just a couple of examples.

In addition to her position as head of department in Babcock's Welding and Non-Destructive Testing department, Veronica engages in these educational and supportive endeavours with an openness, empathy, and passion for her work that has earned her respect in industry.

For these reasons, we wanted to highlight Veronica’s achievement as part of our celebrations for International Women in Engineering Day 2024 and we send Veronica our best wishes moving forward.
