Role Models

Positive female role models are important if we are to transform some of the preconceptions that the public, young girls, their teachers and parents have about who becomes a scientist, technologist, engineer or mathematician.

Could this be you? Become a role model with WISE and it will give you the opportunity to not only raise your own profile but also inspire more women and girls into STEM careers. We are currently looking for role models to feature on our New People Like me Goes digital platform. You can register your interest to be featured on the platform here.

Become a WISE member now to have access to these opportunities and make a real difference in the world of STEM.
