WISE helps organisations to inspire women and girls to pursue science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) as pathways to exciting and fulfilling careers. Their mission is to push the presence of female employees from 13% to 30% by 2020, boosting the talent pool to drive economic growth. On November 14th, they will hold the WISE Awards, in association with the Science Museum, in the inspirational setting of the museum itself. The event promises to be spectacular: guests will be invited to a drinks reception in the impressive Energy Hall, followed by dinner in the inspirational Space Gallery; tickets will go on sale soon. The winners will be announced and presented with their awards over dinner and guests will also be entertained by high profile speakers.

Nominating for a WISE award is simple: individuals and organisations can nominate themselves or nominate a person or organisation they believe deserves a WISE award. There is no charge for entering, simply complete the nomination form and submit it to [email protected] before the closing date which is noon on Wednesday 31 July 2013.
