HOW CAN WE ATTRACT & RETAIN WOMEN IN THE UK STEM INDUSTRIES?
In September 2017, Forward Ladies launched a very successful annual survey. “Bridging the Gender Gap in STEM” in partnership with BT, Coca-Cola, Sky Betting & Gaming, Yorkshire Water and GRAHAM Construction which received responses from 1,299 participants working in STEM.
Conducted online, the survey ran from June - August 2017. Participants included both men and women, working throughout the UK and beyond, at various stages of their STEM careers.

THINKING FORWARD TO BRIDGE THE GENDER GAP IN STEM
Why is there such an imbalance in the STEM workforce, what are the barriers to greater diversity and who is leading the charge to redress the balance?
Bridging the Gap, a second report by Forward Ladies to be published in November 2018, sets out to answer these questions, and more besides. The report will feature the results of unique research carried out amongst Forward Ladies’ members, HR heads and female executives who are enjoying successful careers in the sector.
