The WISE Awards – shortlist revealed!

Thank you to all those who sent nominations in for the WISE Awards and to the sponsors for making it possible. We received more entries than ever before - an encouraging sign of growing activity to build the female pipeline in STEM.

It was really difficult to pick the shortlist as the standard was incredibly high. Congratulations to all 36 listed below. There is a good mix of age, sector and location across the UK. No men made it through this year which is disappointing - now's the time to start thinking about putting forward nominations for male champions next year.

Please help us to spread the word about this year's fabulous shortlist using information from the 
press release. Please contact us if you would like to know more about any of the individuals or organisations in order to promote their story.
