WSP employs impressive women who are revered outside the company for their talents. So much so, that Technical Director of Façade Engineering, Rimmy Vij, and also Head of Business for Lighting & Energy Solutions, Rebecca Hatch, have been appointed to leadership positions at influential external organizations.

"Delighted to see our people excel within their respective fields and be recognised with appointments to professional bodies," congratulated WSP

Rimmy is Chair of The Society of Façade Engineering

"I've been a member of the Society of Façade Engineering (SFE) since 2016 and I am proud of the important role it is playing in bringing together façade engineering professionals to advance knowledge in within our profession and promote best practice. My aim as Chair is to raise the profile of façade engineering and the SFE and to create a forum for all façade professionals from different backgrounds to come together and share skills, knowledge and experience," commented Rimmy [pictured above].

The Society of Façade Engineering brings professionals together in a forum where they can work together to advance knowledge and practice in façade engineering, promote good practice and ensure that today's increasingly complex building façades meet the many and varying performance criteria. In particular, it addresses the complex issues in building physics of thermal insulation, ventilation, lighting, solar control, and acoustics.

Rebecca is President of The Institution of Lighting Professionals

"Becoming the 92nd President of The Institution of Lighting Professionals (ILP) in the 99th year of its existence, and only the third female President, is truly an honour and something I have always aspired to do," shared Rebecca. 

"Throughout my nearly 20-year career, I have always strived to make a positive impact and promote our professional to the next generation. As President, I am eager to continue driving both the institution and our industry forward, promoting our professional, improving accessibility, and making it more appealing to those considering a career in lighting." 

As an influential professional body, The Institution of Lighting Professionals is consulted by government on a wide range of issues, including legislation and regulations that affect the built environment.

The organization aims to ensure that proposed measures are both effective and practicable, by serving on committees, and commenting on draft legislation, reports and consultations.
