STEM Industry

The contribution to GDP made by STEM based industries forms a cornerstone of the UK economy. Government policy for the sector regularly focuses on our innovation and quality. It creates employment, distributes wealth in economic cold spots and is a catalyst social and educational change. Attracting significant foreign investment to our shores, while remaining one of Britain’s leading export areas.

Time for change

STEM Bridge was founded to address the gender imbalance in the Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths sectors. We know it isn’t about ability, access or aptitude; its about mind set. Its about giving the right information at the right time. We believe that the best way to create lasting change is by inspiring it within the emerging workforce. We want to bring sustainable STEM careers into the reach of young women across the UK.

Women in Work

Did you know that women make up just 13% of the UK’s STEM workforce? Yes… we didn’t like the imbalance either!

Love STEM?

Girls at Key Stages 3 and 4 can be the hardest to motivate with STEM subjects as they don’t see a future use for this skill set.

Bigger Picture

Did you know that STEM employment opportunities far outstrip the number of qualified UK graduates. The Campaign for Science and Engineering stated that around 40% of STEM sector jobs are left unfilled due to the lack of qualified candidates.

The work of William Dryden and his team is so needed. I recently hired for my digital team. Of the eight shortlisted candidates only two were women; and only one of those was from and resident in the UK. This gender disparity should be addressed in Education not simply training. Great work STEM Bridge.
