Careers in Ideas Week featured charities: Stemette Futures

For Careers in Ideas Week (16-22 November 2020), we’re running a series of posts featuring relevant charities and community interest groups. They are organisations with an interest in promoting social mobility as well as, in many cases, other forms of diversity. In this post, we hear from the charity Stemette Futures about their work to help more women into STEM careers. You can access a full Careers in Ideas directory of outreach organisations here and read more about the listed organisations on our Careers in Ideas Week page.

What does Stemette Futures do to improve social mobility and access to the professions?


Stemette Futures: Our mission is to inspire the next generation of females into Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM) fields by showing them the amazing women already in STEM through a series of intersectional programmes, impactful events and inspirational content platforms.

Certification: We are providing professional STEM certifications for young people across the country who don’t have proper STEM education provision.

Experiences: We have impacted 45,000 girls with our interventions so far. We aim to reach 500,000 by 2025 across the globe.

Influence: Our ambition is to be the number one influencer in this space, influencing teachers, parents, media and wider society with quality advice, role model stories and actions for change.
