Bridging the gender gap in STEM

STEM

 

Do you work in STEM? How do you think we can best increase gender parity in STEM workplaces?

A new survey by Forward Ladies, supported by Workingmums.co.uk, aims to address the issues and to highlight pioneering women within each sector.

It is widely recognised that there are major challenges around creating a diverse workforce in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM). Just 13% of the UK STEM workforce is female.  A large part of the problem is the lack of female graduates in STEM subjects: just 15% of Engineering, 19% of Computer Studies and 38% of Maths graduates are female.

Moreover, despite continued efforts to bridge the gender gap in STEM workplaces, the number of women engaging with STEM careers is decreasing.

The survey, Thinking forward: bridging the gender gap in STEM, aims to address the gender imbalance in the STEM industries and ask how we can create more inclusive workplaces by asking the women themselves about their experiences within the STEM sector.

It covers areas such as talent attraction and degree options, STEM training and development, including apprenticeships, and best practice on creating inclusive workplace cultures, removing unconscious bias and making sure women who need to take a career break are still getting the opportunities they want.

The survey runs until 25th August. If you are interested in taking part in the survey, please click here
