Totaljobs and STEMettes co-founder encourage more women to enter STEM

Wow, 3,217 of you have read this.

Totaljobs and STEMettes co-founder, Jacquelyn Guderley have joined forces to inspire and encourage more women to enter STEM.

To do this, they have created motion illustrations, each depicting the journey and biases many young girls endure early on in their STEM journey.

Recent statistics show that women make up just 14.4 per cent of the science, tech, engineering and maths workforce in the UK. According to a WISE campaign, only one in ten of STEM managers are female, while just 28 per cent of the world’s researchers are women. According to STEM Graduates, just 15 per cent, 10 per cent and 38 per cent of graduates for engineering, computer studies and maths subjects are women.

STEMettes a social enterprise promoting diversity in the industry as well as a leading gender equality advocate. They aim to inspire the next generation of females into Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM) fields by showing them the amazing women already in STEM via a series of panel events, hackathons, exhibitions, and mentoring schemes.

Totaljobs are also asking for people to complete their survey to find out more about women in STEM and gender equality.
