Meg Munn MP backs WEST

Posted on April 24, 2013 in News

Local MP for Sheffield Heeley, Meg Munn, is backing WEST’s bursaries and our new website.

“I’m delighted to support WEST and pleased to see they are now online with their new website.  I’ll continue to campaign for Sheffield City Region to be first choice for women and girls who want to work and study, science, engineering and technology.

The support ‘Women in Science, Engineering and Technology’ (WEST) provide with their bursaries will make a real difference to local women pursuing their careers.”

Meg Munn has been campaigning in Yorkshire and in Parliament for many years to see more women working in science, engineering and technology and in 2011 edited Unlocking Potential: perspectives on women in Science, Engineering & Technology, a collection of essays exploring what is holding girls and women back and what can be done.

She recently supported a local careers day at Sheffield University encouraging girls to think about a future in science, technology, engineering and maths.
