Increasing Opportunities for Women in Science

Tuesday, September 13, 2005

The deputy minister for Women and Equality, Meg Munn has visited the £6.9 million UK Resource Centre for Women in Science, Engineering and Technology (UKRC), to explore its work to boost the efforts of female science workers.


The centre was developed to tackle the under-representation of women in the science industry. Research indicates women now represent 51 per cent of the workforce in the UK but only account for 18.7 per cent of those employed in science, engineering and technology jobs.


Speaking at the Resource Centre on Monday Meg Munn said: "The UKRC is doing excellent work increasing the opportunities for professional women in science. We need to close the skills gap that is holding back our country's competitiveness. I am delighted to hear first hand about the crucial work and progress that is being made to promote women in science, engineering and technology."


The UKRC works with British business to help them address skills shortages and utilise more women with these skills. It also provides practical help and support to girls and women, including job boards and help with science job searches.
