Women account for just one in 10 of all employees in science, engineering and technology occupations, compared with one in two in the workforce overall.

That is why Prospect is asking employers, decision makers, opinion formers and anyone else who believes that research and innovation are key to achieving economic growth, to sign our charter for women in STEM and implement its proposals.
