The WISE Young Professionals’ Board is a group of diverse exceptional young professionals in Science, Technology and Engineering working at a variety of WISE member companies in the UK. The WYPB prides itself in representing a wide range of backgrounds, educational routes and industries, which allows for authentically championing, engaging with, supporting and representing the 1 million strong UK workforce of women in STEM.

The WYPB also empowers WISE’s decision-making by attending quarterly in-person meet-ups to provide honest and constructive feedback to ensure WISE remains relevant and considerate of young professionals in STEM. 

“As a group of passionate young diverse professionals in STEM we are catalysts of cultural change both in our own workplaces and at a national level. We want there to be gender parity in STEM because a diverse workforce will deliver innovative solutions that solve complex and pressing global issues.”
