Talented Women for a Successful Wales - a report on the education; recruitment; retention and promotion of women in STEM-related study and careers
There is a need to recruit, retain and promote women in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM).
Despite outperforming men in education, women are under-represented in the STEM workforce.
Welsh Government commissioned an independent task and finish group to provide a report on how government can increase the number of women working in STEM. The report makes recommendations on the following:
- recruit more women into STEM in the first place
- retain women in the STEM workforce
- encourage women into leadership roles.
The report sets an agenda for everyone with a stake in the future of the STEM workforce. This includes business, educators, and the public sector.
Report can be found in English and Welsh.
