How can we encourage more women and girls into STEM careers to build a future that incorporates the needs and voices of women? In this session, we explore why in the UK just 24% of STEM roles are held by women, and look at barriers to women pursuing careers in STEM with a diverse panel of speakers from across the tech industry. Topics we’ll be covering include how schools, colleges and government can come together to encourage girls to consider careers based on STEM subjects and the need for employers to take an active role in making STEM careers more appealing to female employees so that women are equally represented in the sector.
