Our long term vision

  • For gender balance in STEM, from the classroom to the boardroom.
  • Our short-term goal
  • One million women working in core STEM occupations by 2020.

Our purpose

  • To enable and energise people who increase the participation, contribution and success of women in the UK’s scientific, technology and engineering (STEM) workforce.

Our Vision

It is as easy and natural for a girl or a woman in the UK to choose and do well in physics, maths, computing, engineering or construction as it is for a boy or a man – wherever she lives and whatever her family background so that:

  • Women make up a third (or more) of the UK’s science, technology and engineering workforce.
  • An open, inclusive culture, transformed by a critical mass of women, draws in bright men and women from all backgrounds.
  • A bigger and more diverse talent pool drives UK productivity, innovation and competitiveness.
