Empowering Futures: The Work-Wise Foundation Partners with the British Army for International Women's Day 2024

In a groundbreaking initiative to celebrate International Women's Day 2024, The Work-Wise Foundation has forged a powerful partnership with the British Army to deliver three impactful Females in STEM Careers Days. These events, set to take place in Sheffield, Barnsley, and Huddersfield on the 5th, 6th, and 7th of March, aim to inspire young minds, particularly those aged 14 and above, about the vast array of opportunities in STEM-related professions.


A Unique Celebration

The Females in STEM Careers Days are not just about celebrating the achievements of women but also providing a unique opportunity for young individuals to interact with successful women in uniformed, public, and private sectors. The collaboration with the British Army adds a distinct flavor to the events, showcasing the diverse avenues available in STEM careers.
