Why WISE?

WISE has unique experience and expertise in working with employers and a wide range of organisations in STEM to help them review and improve their gender diversity and inclusion policy and practice.

We have 30 years experience of inspiring girls to pursue STEM subjects and now incorporate the UKRC, which had a contract from the Government from 2004-12 to increase opportunities for women in science, engineering and technology through support services to business, education and women returners.

Industry Led Ten Steps

Ten Steps29 September 2014 saw the launch of an ambitious, industry-led campaign to ensure that women in science, technology, engineering and manufacturing have the same opportunities to progress in their career as their male counterparts.

In April, WISE invited a cross section of businesses we work with to tell us what had made the most difference to the retention and progression of women in their organisation. Ten companies came to workshop hosted by Allan Cook, Chairman of the Royal Academy of Engineering’s Diversity Group and facilitated by WISE. The result was the Ten Steps.
