Signing the Pledge - the Prospect Pledge

Monday, November 25, 2013

The Prospect trade union held an event recently to launch their Prospect Pledge and they invited Meg Munn MP along to give her support.

 

Meg spoke about the campaign to increase the numbers of women in the science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) sectors of the economy. Prospect recognised the importance of this, with one of their pledges calling for the government to set up a minister-led commission involving Prospect and others, to increase the numbers of women in STEM careers from 13% to 30% by 2020.

 

The Prospect Pledge campaign calls on union members to send ‘pledge’ cards to their elected representatives, and encourage them to sign up to the policy ideas being proposed. The ‘Prospect Pledges’ are:

        Increase the numbers of women in science, technology, engineering and maths careers,

        Responsible procurement,

        Stop the brain drain of skilled civil servants,

        Cut C02 emissions, support new skills, and

        Work with Prospect.

 

Commenting on the Pledge Meg said:

 

We have skill shortages in the science, technology, engineering and maths sectors of the economy. It makes sense to encourage more women to enter these areas and get well paid satisfying careers. But we have to ensure that once qualified they stay and progress through to the top jobs.”
