Tapping All Our Talents Review 2018 – Launch Event

This event has passed


Join us on 19 March as the RSE launches a timely review of its 2012 Inquiry, Tapping All Our Talents: Women in STEM.

It is now six years since the publication of Tapping All Our Talents and the comprehensive set of recommendations the report put forward for Scotland. These recommendations looked to facilitate an increase in both the proportion of women in the STEM workforce and the number who rise to senior positions in universities, research institutes, government, business and industry.

With issues of gender equality and the gender pay gap higher up the political agenda than ever before, and the economic imperative to retain and promote top talent, regardless of gender, starker than ever, the Review Group established by the RSE will consider progress made on women’s equality in the Scottish STEM workplace over the past six years; and what more must be done.

This event will see the formal launch of the review and the publication of a public consultation document seeking the views and experiences of all interested stakeholders. This ‘Call for Evidence’ will be available on the RSE website from 19 March 2018.

Chair of the review, Professor Lesley Yellowlees CBE FRSE will be joined by Dr Fiona McNeill and other members of the Review Group to discuss the project and answer questions.

The Scottish Government Minister for Further Education, Higher Education and Science, Shirley-Anne Somerville MSP will also address the audience.
