How you can get involved!
My Skills My Life is a tried and tested outreach resource created by WISE to inspire girls to consider a career in STEM. It is an interactive, online tool that allows girls to find out their personality types and shows them role models with similar personality types working in STEM. The role model case studies include information about pathways and brings the role models to life for the girls. The online platform also includes information about companies and the opportunities they have to offer.
Become a role model
We would like to create the largest database of STEM role models in the UK, to allow girls to see the vast opportunities available in STEM. We want a range of role models to reflect all sectors and backgrounds to inspire girls to consider a career in STEM. If you would like to be showcased on the platform and are between 18-30 years old:
Showcase your company/organisation
My Skills My Life is an ideal platform to showcase your company/organisation/industry to girls, their parents, teachers and schools. This could include what you do and the kind of people you are looking to recruit in the future. Each role model from your company on the platform will be linked to your organisation and will include the company logo. A company profile on the My Skills My Life platform is FREE for members of WISE who are Core and above. The cost for Online Members is £1000+VAT, which includes initial set up. For every subsequent year, you will be charged a reduced rate to maintain the profile on the site.
My Skills My Life Training
WISE has developed online training to accompany the My Skills My Life resource. My Skills My Life is designed to be complimentary to and supportive of other outreach programmes. The activity can be done as a standalone or in addition to other outreach activities as a hook for girls to see that STEM is for them.
