Siemens were delighted to be awarded: the Widening Participation Award at the House of Lords by Stem Learning, this has been a true collaboration between Siemens, the Girls School Association, Fran Scott Productions, Zinc Media and state schools around the UK.
The SeeWomen campaign was launched in 2018, with 40 schools involved in raising girl’s aspiration in STEM. In 2019 that campaign developed into the larger SeeMe programme. This helped students from a diverse variety of identities and backgrounds access STEM by addressing barriers to STEM in the classroom.
The programme has been truly innovative, bringing together media and education partners to create a ‘wow’ factor for the SeeMe shows. Keen to maximise SeeMe’s impact, and believing that attracting more diverse teams makes for better scientific innovation, the show and resources have now been made available digitally too. Siemen’s own journey has led it to broaden its own programme to increase inclusion in STEM.
