Equity consultant Claire Goodall will share the stories of some of the professionals she and the team have supported over the years, as well as explore how organisations can establish a successful returners programme.

She’ll also go over findings from the STEM Returners Index 2023, which revealed that recruitment bias against race, age and gender still persists in the sector – particularly for returners.

But the team did note ‘evidence of progress’ in that fewer respondents reported experiencing such biases than in the previous year.

Natalie Desty, founder of STEM Returners, said: “There are skills gaps across the engineering, tech and green jobs sectors.

“These gaps are growing, and the UK needs a diverse, agile and innovative STEM workforce more than ever.

“This talented and committed group of professionals are ready to help fill those roles.”

The Returning to STEM webinar takes place on Thursday 8th February from 9:30 to 10:30am.
