By sharing these stories we present visible role models who can inspire, encourage and motivate the next generation of young women to follow their dreams and pursue careers in science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM).
Her Story: Inspiring Women in STEM celebrates amazing women who are blazing their own trails and encouraging others to do the same. Their stories are honest and inspiring, and show that by following your passion, you can achieve anything.
