Tapping All Our Talents 2018 Report

This event has passed

Launch Event

In 2012, the Royal Society of Edinburgh published its report Tapping all our Talents, a comprehensive set of recommendations for Scotland aimed at increasing both the proportion of women in the STEM workforce and the number who rise to senior positions in universities, institutes, government, business and industry.

Six years on, the issues of gender equality and the gender pay gap are higher up the political agenda than ever before, while the economic imperative to retain and promote top talent, regardless of gender, has become starker.

But has this translated into a perceivable shift in culture that encourages women to pursue careers in STEM and enables them to progress at an equal rate to men?

The RSE, in conjunction with the Young Academy of Scotland, has the pleasure of inviting you to the launch of our new report on the progress that has been made over the last six years to address gender imbalance in STEM, and to discuss what remains to be done.
