The issue of recruiting women in STEM is sometimes blamed on the lack of role model women scientists. There are some very nice posters produced by QMUL with images of women’s contributions to computer science.

Two organisations are seeking women working in STEM to encourage the next generation of potential scientists and engineers.
“The female scientist” is looking for people to write short descriptions of themselves to encourage the idea that women can work in STEM disciplines.
WISE (Women in Science and Engineering) have the “My skills My life” campaign which will find ways to engage school age potential STEM recruits
