People Like Me - Careers in a Digital World
techUK and WISE have worked together to produce this People Like Me pack to help young people realise opportunities they may not have known even existed, and help to empower young women to embark on a career path towards tech.
This pack showcases really cool, young women in tech in a wide variety of roles. These girls prove that any young person can have the skills and expertise that would be very welcome right across the tech sector.
The pack will equip teachers and STEM Ambassadors with materials that can show girls from a diverse range of backgrounds that, if they continue with at least one STEM subject post-16, they are likely to have better career prospects and more career choice.It aims to show girls where people like them are happy and successful in their work. It is targeted at girls aged 11-14. WISE recommends using the pack in an all-girl setting, where girls have been found to feel more comfortable sharing their strengths and aspirations. The activity can work equally well in a science, maths, PSHE or careers session.
