Shell Opinion: Inspiring teacher led me to become a woman in STEM

There has been a lot of talk recently about the ‘barriers to entry’ for girls studying science and mathematics at school. Whether it is not feeling smart enough, not knowing about the different career options or just not having the support and role models to encourage and inspire them to take that leap of faith to study science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) subjects, girls are not pursuing STEM careers in the same way boys are.

Opinion: Women in STEM – Real-life role models cannot be underestimated

At St Margaret’s School for Girls we read the article which showed a quarter of girls in Scotland aged between 11 and 16 do not think they are clever enough to become a scientist with great interest. In girls’ schools across the country it has long been acknowledged that building confidence and self-esteem in girls is key to their success in the classroom, particularly with regard to the uptake of science and maths. The number of our girls pursuing STEM subjects at university continues to be high and is in stark contrast with the figures released by EDF Energy today.

Offshore Europe 2015: Shell inspires young women to eye the industry’s opportunities

Oil major Shell has sought to transform the perception of the oil and gas industry after receiving no applications from female students for their engineering programme six years ago. The company and Aberdeen's North East College sought to understand why the only submissions had been from male applicants. Shell said three key reasons were found - poor perception of the industry, lack of female role models and poor experience of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) subjects.

All-Energy 2015: More could be done to close gender and skills gap in renewable industry

A renewables group focused on encouraging more women into the sector is looking for further funding options. WiRES (Women in Renewables Energy Scotland) is looking at its next steps after funding from Close the Gap came to an end. Dr Abbe Brown, from the Centre for Energy Law, the University of Aberdeen said more needed to be done to encourage women and people generally to take up STEM (Science, Technology Engineering and Maths) subjects and close the skills gap within the industry.

Shell invests £1million to bridge skills gap

Oil giant Shell has invested £1million in a programme aimed at helping address the UK’s critical shortage of scientists and engineers. The Perkins Review of Engineering Skills, published last year, called for urgent action from employers to address this shortage. Shell’s three-year funding, which has been invested in the Tomorrow’s Engineer’s Programme, will enable the programme to expand into more than 500 new schools across the UK.
