X-Forces Enterprise was honoured to be alongside The Royal Military Academy Sandhurst (RMAS), The British Army and the Ministry of Defence (MOD) for a special Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM) Careers Showcase, which took place on Thursday 24th May 2018 at The RMAS. In attendance was the Rt. Hon Tobias Ellwood, Minister for Defence, People and Veterans; Brigadier Bill Wright, Commander and Lt. Col Deborah Taylor who was instrumental in organizing the event.
The Showcase event was a fantastic opportunity for girls from schools across the UK to see a wide range of STEM educational pathways and future employers. Traditionally STEM subjects and careers have not always been as appealing to young women as to young men, in light of this, current research shows a gender gap in career choices.
