What projects / schemes / initiatives to support women's recruitment, retention and progression in STEM are 6point6 limited involved in?
6point6 was founded 5 years ago with 2 employees. They wanted to take a different approach to technology delivery as they strongly believed that in today’s business environment, buyers are looking to their technology partners to come into any business meeting with their client’s best interests at hearts. They now have 20 permanent members of staff, alongside a 75 strong and building consultant headcount. 5 of their permanent roles are key to the organisation and are carried out by women; currently they have one female board member and a further female at executive level.
As part of their new forming Diversity Strategy they are keen to place as many women as possible into the business and want to break down the barriers that are all too often seen as “men only". As of the Summer of 2017 they are employing their second female graduate for an IT based career. This role offers full training, mentoring and all the support needed to embark on a new career with 6point6.
6point6 wants to enable and energise people in the IT sector in particular to encourage females to participate, contribute and be the successful strong leaders of tomorrow in technology. By promoting STEM careers and making STEM industries more transparent and accessible it is hoped that we can inspire a new generation of young females.

We hope we can inspire our workforce to get involved in different ways with many of our “big world problems” to help ultimately lead us to a diverse, inclusive and successful industry.”
