A report published earlier this month by the UK Commission for Employment and Skills (UKCES) highlighted a major shortage of skilled workers in STEM sector roles, and recommended that employers make STEM roles more appealing to women.  So why not submit your nomination by August 17 and help the WISE Campaign celebrate the successes of women working in STEM, the men and women that support them and inspire a new generation.There couldn’t be a better time to nominate yourself, an individual or an organisation for this year’s WISE Awards.

The annual WISE Awards recognise individuals and organisations who are actively promoting science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) to girls and young women. The event also offers the chance to hear stories of inspirational women working in STEM careers, and to take part in networking activities. The shortlist at last year’s awards comprised some amazing people, from students and apprentices inspiring other girls to forge a career in STEM, to women making great advances in science and technology in both the corporate and academic worlds. STEM organisations were also honoured for their efforts in promoting and supporting diversity in the workplace. Among those shortlisted last year were Professor Tara Moore, director of the Biomedical Science Research Institute at Ulster University, and Loraine Martins MBE, director of diversity and inclusion at Network Rail.’
