Working with a range of schools, colleges, local industry and professional bodies, UCLan aims to inspire a generation, encouraging more students to enter the fields of engineering as well as broader STEM subjects, in particular the proportion of females.
We have developed a poster campaign which is part of our Athena Swan Bronze Award action plan, which demonstrates our commitment to recognising and rewarding success of Women in STEM. Female students are less likely to choose to study STEM subjects, this can be due to gender stereotypes and incorrect perceptions of the type of careers that are available. The posters were intended to present a range of female role models who balance their personal and professional lives and coming high-flying STEM success with a range of other interests.
