What should we be doing to create change for Women in STEM

Posted by & filed under Osmii Culture, Recruitment & HR, Technology.

It is widely acknowledged that STEM careers are male-dominated, in fact the percentage of Women in STEM working in an industry such as Computer Studies is only 19%! This is hardly surprising when we consider that only 13% of the overall UK STEM workforce is female.

It is believed the STEM imbalance comes from the lack of awareness shown to girls in school and the encouragement to study STEM further at university. Only 3% of females say a career in technology is their first choice.
