The Women in Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM) Board is a forum for STEM ambassadors to come together to discuss issues and progress. The Board also leads to improve gender equality across the Welsh STEM community.

The current chair is Deputy Minister and Chief Whip, Jane Hutt AM. The Welsh Government Office for Science (WGOS) provides the secretariat for the Board and the working group, which supports it. Three sub-groups have been formed. They have a term of 18 to 21 months, to drive forward direct activity in the respective areas:

  • communications and engagement
  • industry
  • education

The Working group aims to meet four times a year. The September 2018 meeting decided that there was a need for research work to understand underlying trends and issues at all stages. It wants a better, more detailed picture of existing and available evidence.
