Gender Equality in STEM December 9, 2010

Posted by qmresearchers in Uncategorized.

I recently attended a one-day workshop about promoting gender equality in Science, Engineering, Technology and Maths (STEM). It was run by UKRC and sponsored by National HE STEM Programme.

It contained lots of really useful information and made me think about some of the reasons why women are not well represented in some STEM sectors.

Much was covered in one day but I just wanted to draw your attention to some of the resources that might be useful if you are a female early career researcher at Queen Mary:

1) GetSET Women: A list of women working in STEM sectors that are available to speak at conferences/be mentors etc. This may be useful for WISE at QM who run a series of events.

2) Job Vacancies Page: A list of job vacancy sites for women in STEM sectors.

3) Getting a Job: Advice on getting a job!

Also, look at the UKRC website in its entirety as there are lots more resources there!
