Inspiring the next generation of leaders in STEM, supporting trailblazing Rocket Women globally

Rocket Women firmly believes that role models need to be tangible and visible to be able to inspire the next generation of young women to achieve their dreams. Our aim is to empower trailblazing diverse women in science & engineering globally through providing a platform to ensure that their voices are heard and building a supportive community of women in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Maths). By featuring stories of successful women in STEM, we want Rocket Women to give young women and girls globally the realisation that they can be astronauts, scientists and engineers or whatever they aim to be.

Rocket Women aims to empower diverse young women to choose a career in STEM, so that we can improve the current percentage of female science & engineering talent globally and ensure that the vital technological solutions that we create in the world today are both built by and represent society as a whole.

Young women aren’t just poised to change the world – they hold the potential to lead and make a difference in the world today.

Now, more than ever, we need 100% of the talent available to solve the really hard problems we’re facing in the world today.
