What is being done to motivate female talent in the STEM field in the world?

The Female Lead

The Female Lead is a charitable incorporated organisation (CIO) dedicated to making women’s stories more visible and offering alternative role models to those ever-present in popular culture. Founded by data pioneer and entrepreneur Edwina Dunn, the project highlights the breadth of female achievement in order to offer inspiration for future generations.

The Female Lead creates a variety of spaces to present these stories including a book of 60 amazing women from around the world (launching in February 2017), an online and social media presence, and an outreach programme for girls in schools, celebrating female role models who shape the world.
