In a year of reflection and transformation, MoneyMatix is actively engaging with women in STEM careers to explore their experiences. This initiative aims to recognise the progress made in female inclusivity in STEM since Ada Lovelace's time while acknowledging the barriers that persist. Through these conversations, MoneyMatix seeks to drive positive change and make STEM careers accessible to more women.
HEAD Sourcing had an enlightening discussion with Jane Morrison-Ross, CEO of ScotlandIS. She shared her remarkable journey from pursuing a postgraduate course in multimedia technology in the mid-90s to advising global businesses on new technologies. While she experienced diverse and supportive environments in larger organisations, Jane acknowledges that overall female participation in STEM, particularly in technology, remains below ideal levels.
