Purpose

Despite the extensive presence of gender equality initiatives in the UK, progress on improving the gender balance of engineering and physical science students and staff has been slow. The overall goal of this project is to accelerate progress towards gender equality by boosting the effectiveness of existing initiatives which are not leading to rapid improvement in gender statistics.
