Why increasing the number of women in STEM matters.
Increasing the number of women in STEM is the economically right thing to do. Evidence tells us that a diverse workforce increases profitablity, productivity and creativity across industry.
Increasing the number of women in STEM is the socially right thing to do. The jobs of the future are either in the STEM industries or will require STEM skills. It is crucial that the doors to these jobs are open to women, or we risk further locking women out of opportunities.

We support a network of champions to advance gender equality and support women in STEM students to advance their careers.
We work with universities and colleges to help them recruit a local STEM student champion who can develop activities on campus to support and engage other women students in STEM.
