As we celebrate International Women’s Day 2019, educators should be compelled to champion the status of women in STEM professions to give real-life role models for the next generation of female scientists. Whether it is by organising successful women in technology to offer talks and presentations to schools on their job and their journey, or celebrating the achievements of female pioneers in the field such as Ada Lovelace, Valentina Tereshkova and Grace Murray Hopper. Championing the achievements of women in technology, science and maths can only empower the next generation and it is our duty to remind ourselves of that, not just on International Women’s Day, but throughout the year. It is less about what we do in the workplace and more importantly, what we do before these young women enter the workplace.
