Support women into careers in science, engineering or technology.

Recruit and retain talented employees for your business. 

The Women in Engineering initiative helps women get into Science, Technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) careers, stay in them, move up the career ladder and get to the top.

Women are supported through a career enhancement programme, individual career coaching and leadership training

Businesses are supported to adopt employment practices and workplace cultures which benefit everyone.

The initiative, run by Equate and supported by Semta, also aims to increase awareness of the business benefits of a diverse workforce.

  • Improve staff motivation and skills, increase productivity and reduce turnover
