Inspiring more young women into STEM

Today marks International Women’s Day and an opportunity to reflect on how far the push for gender parity has come.
Our youth engagement programme, Born to Be aims to support all young people aged 11-18 to become who they were born to be with projects such as Student to STEMette in partnership with Stemettes focusing specifically on building skills and changing aspirations of young women.
Stemettes believe the key to tackling the underrepresentation of women in STEM will be industry’s ability to communicate effectively with young women and are leading the way with their flagship app OtotheB.
The free app, supported by Deutsche Bank through Born to Be, creates a global online platform for girls interested in STEM and entrepreneurship.

In the words of Yasmine Dankwah, currently part of our Student to STEMette programme, “Technology isn’t a stand-alone term - it comes in combinations. For example, technology and business, or technology and medicine, and even creative writing and film. I now realise that I do still want to be a part of a growing tech industry but through words, graphics and virtual environments thanks to Stemettes!”
