“We want to show every girl in this country and her family that she could have a wonderful future in Science & Engineering” HRH The Princess Royal, Patron of WISE

Nominations are now open for the WISE Awards 2016. There are ten categories recognising organisations and individuals who have gone above and beyond to champion gender diversity in STEM. The WISE Awards showcase remarkable women and men whose stories are not widely known but are changing the face of science, technology and engineering in the UK.
At the WISE Conference 2015, Vivian Hunt from McKinsey suggested we introduce an award for a male champion, and now with joint sponsorship from McKinsey and the Royal Academy of Engineering we are excited to launch the "WISE Man of the Year" Award. We believe we need to recognise the men who are positive agents for change in the UK STEM sector and encourage more men to follow in their footsteps and take action to back the WISE campaign aims. For the first time, we will also be accepting international nominations for the "WISE International Open Source" Award sponsored by Bloomberg, in order to reflect the global nature of the open source community.
We want to hear from people who haven’t previously been recognised for their achievements. We want to share stories from individuals and organisations that will inspire others in STEM as well as parents and the next generation. 
Does this sound like you or someone you know? Nominate for a WISE Award NOW!
