If you want more women in science, technology, engineering, manufacturing, construction – from the classroom to the boardroom and at all stages in between
– WISE is here to help.
Whether you are a business, employer, research institution, professional body, education or training provider or simply an individual wanting to join like-minded people with the energy and commitment to bring about positive change – you have come to the right place.
Our long term vision
For gender balance in STEM, from the classroom to the boardroom.
Our short-term goal
One million women working in core STEM occupations by 2020.
It is as easy and natural for a girl or a woman in the UK to choose and do well in physics, maths, computing, engineering or construction as it is for a boy or a man – wherever she lives and whatever her family background so that:
• Women make up a third (or more) of the UK’s science, technology and engineering workforce.
• An open, inclusive culture, transformed by a critical mass of women, draws in bright men and women from all backgrounds.
• A bigger and more diverse talent pool drives UK productivity, innovation and competitiveness.
