International Day of Women and Girls in Science
Today we recognise the International Day of Women and Girls in Science. A significant gender gap has persisted throughout the years at all levels of STEM disciplines all over the world. ‘Less than 30% of researchers across the world are women and in fields such as Artificial Intelligence (AI) women only make up 22% of professionals’. This needs to change!
At the College, we have a commitment to ensuring our students have the opportunity to thrive in their area(s) of interest and know they are making significant contributions with whatever they choose. Profiled below are a selection of incredibly diverse past pupils who are forging their way in STEM areas and inspiring our current students. Progress is being made, change is happening – we look forward to witnessing what our STEM loving students embark on during their time at the College and beyond!
