This briefing sheet explores UK initiatives to open the doors
of SET to women and help them climb the ladder to success. It
shows how the role of women in science and engineering can be
promoted effectively at different levels, from UK and international
networks and overarching government policies and intervention,
to local courses and interactive hands-on events.
The briefing sheet is by no means an exhaustive directory. It
highlights good practices that have shown some success. Other
countries may be able to draw on UK experiences without having
to repeat research or 'reinvent the wheel'. Similarly, other countries
will have useful experience to share with organisers in the UK.
Full contact details for all key organisations mentioned in the
text are given at the end of the document.
