Gender imbalance and how to get girls interested in STEM

Today is International Girls in ICT Day! International Girls in ICT Day is an initiative to create a global environment that empowers and encourages girls and young women to consider careers in the growing field of information and communication technologies (ICTs). International Girls in ICT Day is celebrated on the 4th Thursday in April every year. You can read more about the initiative at http://girlsinict.org/.

To support this initiative, I’ve written a guest blog post for Professional Engineering:

Getting Girls into Physics

A related article also appeared in the E&T magazine this morning:

International day encourages women to enter ICT

My views have been formed through many conversations, thought-provoking articles and inspiring talks, in many cases prompted by my membership (and steering group membership) of Cambridge AWiSE. I’m keen to know your thoughts and comments.
