Fabulous to see the surge in girls getting A-levels in computing and physics and coming through with flying colours.
Girls enthused from their participation in the WISE Residential at RAF Cosford will look to the WISE site for their next move. Send us details of opportunities you can offer to nurture their interest in science, engineering and technology.
Congratulations to the impressive finalists for this year’s WISE Awards – we will share your stories to show girls and their families that STEM subjects open up opportunities to do some amazing things, and to show organisations what can be achieved when you put your mind to making a real difference.
Ruth Blanco joined us last month as our new Communications Director.
“One thing I love about my new role at WISE is that my daughters, aged 8 and 4, understand exactly what it is we do and why we do it. This is a very exciting time for women in STEM, and I’m delighted to join the team at WISE as we work together to make real change happen. The passion and drive I’ve seen from the WISE team, our members and partners has been inspiring, and I look forward to meeting and working with more of you as we work on improving the gender balance in STEM simply because it benefits everyone.”
