Welcome to People Like Me

People Like MePeople Like Me is a revolutionary approach to engaging girls with careers in Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM). People Like Me uses the natural tendency of girls to articulate their self-identity using adjectives, to show them that people like them are happy and successful working in careers in STEM.

The approach was developed based on the ‘Not for People like Me’ research led and authored by WISE board member Professor Averil MacDonald and sponsored by Network Rail. Find out more.

The original resource pack can be found here.

Help us to reach 200,000 girls

WISE is collaborating with tech uk on an ambitious plan to reach 200,000 girls, showing them STEM subjects will open doors to a variety of jobs to suit their personality type. Over 60 people from 40 different companies came to the launch of the People Like Me goes digital project on 31 January.

CA Technologies, sponsors of the People Like Me Careers in Digital pack, is the first founding sponsor of the new project. We will develop an e-learning package to train 7,000 ambassadors to deliver People Like Me sessions and put the quiz and other content onto a mobile platform in order to reach more girls. Our aim is to persuade more girls to choose STEM subjects, apprenticeships or other STEM vocational qualifications when they choose options at 16.
