uk resource centre for women in science, engineering and technology


The Resources section provides access to a range of information that covers all areas of research, organisations and initiatives on the issues relating to girls and women in science, engineering and technology.
Our SET Directory includes links to a plethora of groups, organisations and websites engaged at all levels with supporting women in SET and tackling the many issues that contribute to their under-representation in the sector.
The Publications Catalogue hosts over 4,000 items. Completely searchable, it includes links to downloadable resources as well as listing conference proceedings, journal articles, promotional material and a variety of reports and web-based articles.
You will also find here a list of the UKRC's publications and products: these include ten Good Practice Guides, promotional literature to encourage girls into and women back into SET careers, research papers and UKRC-commissioned survey results. Most of these are available free of charge through the online order form.
Case studies and role models have been shown to be some of the most effective means of engaging girls and the public with the variety and scope of the careers in SET at all levels. Over 100 women have listed their personal stories on our site. This fully searchable listing shows women at all stages of their careers across all the sectors and many of them are downloadable in a ready to use format.
If you would like to be featured in any of these sections please contact us with the details of your initiative and where you would like it featured.
