STEM Graduates Women in STEM Promoting opportunities, employers and events to female students and graduates Background It is widely acknowledged that STEM careers are male dominated. Just 15% of Engineering graduates are female. The figures are 19% for Computer Studies and 38% for Maths. Whilst we are unable to influence the subjects selected by students, we can focus our attention on ensuring that females who have opted to study a STEM degree are made aware of our services. We are keen to highlight female specific events to the STEM Graduates community and to ensure that female visitors to our site are introduced to role-models.

Learned Societies – a party worth joining – BioScience Careers Comments such as these from reports of winners of the latest round of SEB travel grants made me wonder how many researchers and PhD students are aware of these types of benefits, widely available to them in the early stages of their careers. Many academic learned societies own journals, which earn quite substantial subscription income and, as charities, they return much of this money to their members and relevant disciplinary communities. Some of the biggest beneficiaries of these returns are early career researchers and students, who can apply for all sorts of awards and receive considerable discounts on conferences.

The Tech Partnership - careers in IT Learned societies – BioScience Careers Learned societies are academic ‘clubs’ which specialise in a particular discipline, with a membership made up of people who share an interest in that subject. Members can include academics, university researchers, people working in industry, postgraduate and undergraduate students, teachers and even school students and members of the public. Each learned society has its own set of rules on its membership reach, fees and benefits. There are dozens of bioscience learned societies in the world each with their own specialism. For example, the Society for Experimental Biology offers membership to animal, plant and cell biologists and limits its reach to academics, researchers and postgraduate students. Many learned societies own journals from which they earn substantial revenue in the form of university library subscriptions, which they use to fund their activities. Benefits offered by learned societies include: Society for Experimental Biology Biochemical Society British Ecological Society
