Talent2030 is a campaign to encourage more talented young females to pursue careers in manufacturing and engineering – including software development.
As well as direct outreach work with schools, Talent2030 has been building up the policy case for change within government, business and universities, and have published ambitious targets setting out the numbers of young women the UK needs to be studying physics, mathematics and engineering – from GCSE through to PhD.
The organisation features on its website real life examples of people in engineering and manufacturing as heroes to inspire more girls. I am very honored to be featured as one of these heroes.
Here is where you can read more about these heroes including myself : http://www.talent2030.org/heroes/ .
