Your opportunity to influence the STEM agenda in the UK! This is one of a series of roundtable events that focus on major D&I related issues for Members.

It is time to move on from research to practical action if we are to get traction on changing the STEM landscape and this requires a concerted effort from employers, students, teachers and parents.  Our conference last year focused on providing direction and practical solutions that enable employers to understand the educational context, involving key stakeholders and demonstrating how best to increase participation of qualified people into the workplace.  enei’s Roadmap signposts the resource available for employers, students, teachers and parents and with our support, we are confident that there are real opportunities to be exploited which will deliver measurable progress in STEM based careers for an increasingly diverse range of people.

We are delighted to have secured the STEM and Digital Skills Unit (who are reviewing the Government’s approach to STEM in the UK) to attend this roundtable in order to seek Members’ feedback on the current STEM issues in the UK and potential options for the Government to consider.

This will enable us to work with Members to translate this into real action in the workplace – including research/trialling approaches to see which are most effective.
