Equate STEMinists Awards
Equate Scotland are launching The Equate STEMinist Awards, to tackle gender stereotyping and combat misconceptions about women in STEM.
Only 25% of women make up Scotland’s STEM sector. At Equate Scotland we want to see more women studying, working and leading in these sectors. But you can’t be what you can’t see! The #EquateSTEMinist Awards and campaign aims to challenge persisting stereotypes and celebrate diversity in Scotland’s STEM sector.
These awards are an opportunity to recognise the amazing things women, students and gender equality champions are doing in Scotland. Help us tell their stories, that will inspire other women and girls in STEM, share best practice, showcase outstanding results and recognise the amazing things that people do that make a difference.
Spread the word and nominate! The closing date is October 6th.
