Anita Krishnamurthi, Wellcome's Head of Education and Learning"Gender gaps and socio-economic inequality continue to be major issues influencing young people’s choices, self-perception and opportunities in science. Families and their connections in particular emerge as major brokers of progression and future opportunities. To make STEM access and opportunities equitable for all young people we must work more holistically, taking account of all the factors that support and prevent young people’s engagement."
