What projects / schemes / initiatives to support women’s recruitment, retention and progression in STEM are Rolls-Royce involved in?
We have a leadership model which stresses the importance of having a diverse team and behaviours that truly engage and enable people to perform at their best.
We actively encourage our employees to become STEM Ambassadors championing STEM skills. As mentors and role models, they help inspire individuals and increase recognition that a career in engineering is wide ranging, interesting and fulfilling. It is also critical that we help raise awareness of STEM skills amongst girls and inspire young women to consider a career in engineering.
