Wanted: Equality in STEM Female Role Models

We have set up the Equality in STEM network to inspire, support and develop women in the Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM) sectors. As part of this, we have created a monthly column to profile women already working in these sectors, so that we can highlight role models and raise awareness of the diversity of the roles available.

We promote this on the Equality in STEM blog and social media, along with running this as a monthly column with our media partner, unLTD magazine which is distributed across South Yorkshire to an audience of 5,000 businesses.
