Episode 6: Women in the STEM Sector
If you work in a traditionally male-dominated industry, and you’ve ever felt undermined or overlooked at work, this episode is for you. There is a worldwide shortage of graduates in the STEM sector (this includes Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths). Women, black and ethnic minorities are under-represented, under-recruited and under-promoted in STEM roles. The reasons for this are both obvious and complex. Organisations like Equate Scotland, have a mandate to redress this balance and they are doing incredible work.
Allison Johnstone leads Equate Scotland’s learning and development programme. She talks candidly and openly about women’s experience in STEM, whats changing and why the issues are so much bigger than our self-doubt.
