13 March 2017
On Monday, 13 March, leaders from business, academia and the Welsh Government, joined forces at The Senedd - National Assembly for Wales, to tackle head on the lack of women in STEM (science, technology, engineering and maths) in Wales, in the presence of HRH The Princess Royal and Julie James, Minister for Skills and Science.
The WISE Celebration of Talented Women brought together ministers, academics, businesses and schools who are backing the Welsh Government commissioned report to address STEM skills shortages by getting more women and girls into science, technology and engineering.
Talented Women for a Successful Wales was commissioned by Professor Julie Williams, Chief Scientific Adviser for Wales, who chaired a Q&A with industry leaders on the day. See the Women in STEM video they shared below.
