A tookkit from the UKRC focusing on science, engineering and technology.
- Do you own or run a website that is about science, engineering and technology (SET) or features SET in some way?
- Are you running a blog or online forum where SET issues are sometimes or always addressed?
- Are you raising SET issues through social media such as LinkedIn, Twitter and Facebook?
This toolkit will help you represent men and women fairly and positively, ensuring that you are inspirational to your audiences, and that you build diversity in content and in visitors to your online activities.
The toolkit identifies some of the challenges to look out for, and it lists some useful resources that will help you represent men and women in SET in positive ways.
It has been put together by the UKRC, as a result of research we published in 2010 into the presence and representation of women in SET occupations in UK-based online media (researched and written by Heather Mendick, Goldsmiths, University of London and Marie-Pierre Moreau, University of Bedfordshire).
