WISE tracks progress towards our goal of a critical mass of women working in the UK STEM workforce (30%) through the Labour Force Survey which gives a gender breakdown for different occupations. The latest figures, (August 2015), show that women make up 14.4% of all people working in STEM occupations.
These are the latest statistics on women’s participation in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) in the UK. These figures provide a snapshot of the current position, from classroom to boardroom, based on data available in November 2012.
