In the wake of the UN’s International Day of Women and Girls in Science, held on Saturday Feb 11, the Scottish National Party promoted its drive to improve gender equality in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM).
McKelvie also highlighted that the Equate Scotland group received $62,585 (GBP 50,000) to offer paid placements to women with the relevant qualifications in the STEM sector, filling known skills gaps in key economic sectors like engineering and science.
Between 2007 and 2016 the number of female entrants in STEM subjects at Scottish universities had increased by 26 percent in first degree courses and 47 percent in postgraduate courses, the SNP revealed.
Attracting, retaining and advancing women in STEM careers has been an ongoing challenge for the wider oil and gas industry.
