When it comes to encouraging women into science, technology and engineering, we just haven’t got the messaging right. Most girls decide that jobs and careers in science are “not for people like me”.
This booklet was produced in March 2014 by WISE for the Royal Academy of Engineering with support from the Women’s Engineering Society (WES) and Women into Engineering and Technology (WiSET) at Sheffield Hallam University.
WISE has teamed up with Intel and The Institute of Physics to create a discussion workshop on the theme of women and girls in Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM). The workshop has been designed to inspire girls about the STEM subjects where they are under-represented, such as physics and computer science, by showing them how these subjects connect with issues girls care about and their importance as a gateway into a wide range of interesting jobs and careers.
