Career Development

Beyond WISE

Posted 1st June 2016

Between starting a career to being promoted to middle management, 50% of the female talent leave the STEM profession. Yet we need these women to stay, if we are to address the skills shortage.

Having interviewed many women who leave STEM professions, it is sad to hear that they all share similar experiences that influenced their decisions. This indicates that current initiatives are failing to have an impact on talent and skills retention.

At the Beyond WISE (Women in Science and Engineering) event, we share postgraduate research and industry evidence on how pay inequality, promotion blockages, and lack of external opportunities are experienced. Armed with this information, you will see why a different approach is needed to have a greater impact on recruiting and retaining a diverse workforce.

Join us on 30th June to find out more on:

  • The evidence that drives women out of STEM professions
  • Why industry has made insignificant progress in addressing Diversity and Inclusion
  • The small changes needed, to make big differences to promote Fairness, Inclusiveness and Respect in the workplace
