We want to instill confidence and inspire ambition. We debunk the myth that maths is only for males, and encourage more girls to choose maths. We support girls to discover where maths can take them…. and how it can change the world!
Using Maths4Girls’ relatable, inspirational role models in the classroom can combat unconscious gender bias, increase visibility of women in maths, and increase awareness of further study routes and careers that use maths.
Available online or in the classroom, Maths4Girls volunteers share their career journey, explain what their job is, and how they got there. They will also allow time to answer pupils' questions.
Maths4Girls speakers come from a range of maths-based business and industry sectors including engineering, manufacturing, healthcare, sciences, and finance. Where appropriate, they will link their job to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, explaining how their job makes a difference.
