Because diversity isn’t a nice-to-have, it's a must have!

The data makes it clear: creating a diverse working world is both a moral and economic necessity.

The work we’re doing with our Endorsed Employers not just recruit but retain STEM women of colour. We won’t stop until we develop where all women are able to thrive.

If you want diversity, then create the space for inclusion
