We partner with STEM organisations, clients, industry bodies and community groups and individuals to support the progression of women in STEM and help women reach their potential.
By empowering women to access roles and promotions in STEM we will create a more diverse and successful community across the globe.
In 2022, our Breaking the Glass programme, based in the US, encompassed 20 learning and networking events (see examples below) for aspiring and existing women in STEM. With 33 industry leaders speaking on panels, we provided women with knowledge, insights and skills on topics related to STEM, personal development, and career progression. In total, these events attracted 943 participants, most of whom were women.
Key BTG events
Girl Develop IT
BTG partnered with Girl Develop IT (GDI) to supercharge potential and unbox careers for women in the Business Intelligence and Data fields. The participants benefitted from insights and knowledge gained during ‘Résumé Reviews’, ‘Interview Preparation’, ‘Meet the Pros’ and ‘Recruiter Q&A’ sessions. As a result, GDI was able to attract 50 new members, all with ambition to build a more equitable and confident workforce of women in STEM.
The Women in Cable Tech (WICT) Network
In 2022, we expanded our relationship with the WICT Network by becoming their ‘Women in STEM’ partner and teaming up with both the WICT Rocky Mountain and Carolinas Chapters. Through this partnership with SThree, the WICT Network were able to provide support to Girls Who Code, WICT Network’s Tech It Out, The Nomi M. Bergman Fellowship, The WICT Network PAR Initiative, Women’s TechConnect and The Women in Technology Award.
Supporting Women in Climate Careers
This year, BTG also partnered with two ‘Women in climate careers’ groups: Women in Cleantech + Sustainability and New England Women in Energy & the Environment. Our climate-focused programme this year reached 86 professionals and helped address both representation of women in STEM but also the green skills gap.
“We are here to support, guide, and advocate for every candidate in our Breaking the Glass programme and Girl Develop IT network. I look forward to seeing what the future holds with our partnership and how we will positively impact lives together.” - Susan Mire Associate Manager at SThree
