UK Resource Centre (UKRC) for women in SET

The Academy works closely with the UKRC, who provide information and advisory services to industry, academia, professional institutions, education and Research Councils within SET professions, whilst supporting women entering and progressing SET careers.

Through vehicles such as the CEO Charter and the SET Fair Standard, the UKRC supports organisations in their journey towards gender equality. The UKRC also runs the WISE Campaign, which encourages and supports girls to stick with maths and physics, and consider careers in the areas of science, engineering and construction.

As part of the Ingenious Grants programme, the Academy funded the UKRC’s Ingenious Women project. Over several months, 19 female engineers from a variety of backgrounds and domains were given intensive media training and mentoring to equip them to become enthusiastic and articulate ambassadors and role models for engineering. The project covered traditional print media as well as radio, television and new social media outlets such as blogs and Twitter. Read about this inspiring group of women.
