Inspiring girls with People Like Me

People Like Me

People Like Me aims to support the recruitment of girls into STEM subjects post-16, particularly those that girls typically do not choose such as physics and engineering. Currently physics is the 3rd most popular A-level for boys but only the 19th for girls, and of 14,000 engineering apprentices, in 2017 only 450 were girls. Failing to recruit girls into these areas is not only limiting for the girls (as they miss out on great careers in exciting areas) but also represents a real threat to the UK economy.

I thought the webinar was fantastic and felt really motivated and inspired afterwards. I have a session booked in July at a girls school and even though it isn’t specifically a people like me event, there was so much useful information in the webinar that I can use. Things like girls relating to failure more, keeping their options open, being more in the know about post GCSE options etc.
