WISE, the campaign for gender balance in science, technology & engineering, have joined up with Amazon to launch a new consultation aimed at creating a roadmap for increasing the number of women working in the innovation economy.
The consultation, also supported by the Lord Ashcroft International Business School, will be used as the basis for a Women in Innovation report to help better understand:
The report aims to provide a roadmap for policymakers and companies across the UK to increase diversity in tech and develop the next generation of female tech leaders.
Women in STEM-focused careers are being invited to tell their story and contribute to the final Women in Innovation report – from those starting out in their careers to women in senior STEM-focused roles. The Women in Innovation report will be published early next year.
The report’s recommendations will be supported and overseen by a newly created Women in Innovation Advisory Committee, made up of senior leaders from across industry.
