City of Westminster College is proud to mark the International Day of Women and Girls in Science.
Gender inequality and sexism continue to present barriers that prevent women and girls from entering STEM subjects across the world and both City of Westminster College and our sister college, College of North West London, are committed to working to change that.
Ending the STEM gender gap is a central priority of International Day of Women and Girls in Science, an initiative that has been created by the United Nations.
As part of its dedication to being an equal, inclusive, and progressive place to work and study, the United Colleges Group is keen to promote women and girls in STEM subjects and is happy to join with the United Nations and everyone celebrating this important day.
International Day of Women and Girls in Science is also an opportunity to celebrate the accomplishments of women and girls in STEM and to remember the trailblazing pioneers that have made the progress seen in recent years possible.
As the world marks International Day of Women and Girls in Science, the United Colleges Group reiterates is pride in its female STEM students and staff and reconfirms its dedication to getting more women and girls into the STEM subjects.
Wherever you are in the world, the United Colleges Group wishes you a happy and fulfilling International Day of Women and Girls in Science.
Stephen Davis, Group Principal and CEO of the United Colleges Group, said: “Gender equality across all subjects is pivotal to the growth, advances, and breadth of knowledge that they can provide; and STEM subjects are no exception.
“Women and girls are still not fairly represented and that is why marking International Day of Women and Girls in Science is so important.
“We at the United Colleges Group remain wholly committed to improving the gender balance in STEM subjects and will do everything we can to make true gender equality, in this and all fields, a reality.”
