Our Mission

STEM subjects have been “dominated” by boys for decades!

But here’s the thing. Girls regularly outperform boys across these subjects.
So, why aren’t more girls choosing to take STEM subjects beyond GCSE?

It’s not down to ability. It’s more often down to confidence.
It’s hard to believe you can do it if you can’t see anyone like you actually doing it.

So this is where EQUALS comes in..
Working with some inspirational women and amazing partners, we want to empower YOU – the next generation – with the tools, information and advice that will help you tear down any pre-conceived labels and start doing more of the things you love.

More of the things that matter.
More of the things you didn’t think were possible.

The future EQUALS you. The only question is, what does it look like?
