People Like Me

techUK has teamed up with the WISE campaign and members to produce a tailored version of WISE’s People Like Me resources for girls to consider careers in tech.

Research conducted by the WISE Campaign in the 'Not for people like me' report, found that talking about STEM careers and what tasks they perform often doesn't attract girls. Instead, allowing girls to look at the kind of person they are and how their attributes correspond to roles in these sectors is what actually makes the difference. 

That's why techUK teamed up with WISE and its members to create a bespoke version of WISE’s People Like Me resources for girls to consider careers in tech. The pack will enable teachers and ambassadors to develop a novel and effective approach to engaging girls in tech incorporating lesson planning, language guidance and visual support.

The pack features a number of cool, young women in tech who demonstrate that technology offers such a wide variety of roles. It proves that any young person can have the skills and expertise that would be very welcome right across the tech sector. We’d like to thank our members that partnered with us on this exciting initiative and provided us with inspirational role models from their own companies:

Accenture

CA Technologies

Cerner

Citrix

Intel

Salesforce
