About

Introducing WATT

 

We empower and inspire young women to set ambitious goals.  We tell the stories of strong and relatable female role models in STEM (Science Technology Engineering and Mathematics). We want young women to feel they too can overcome challenges, study at top universities and succeed in important and challenging careers.

Our Mission

We promote gender equality in areas where women are still underrepresented. We aim to build a global platform to showcase different careers in STEM, encouraging diversity in the next generation of leaders and ensuring the sustainability and growth of the global economy.

SheWasYou™

Our SheWasYou™ campaign tells the inspirational stories of women during their studies and early careers in STEM.  These role models come from all over the world and are now building successful careers in various sectors (e.g. academia, industry, pharma, start-ups, business, etc).  SheWasYou™ focuses on the challenges they overcame to achieve their success, showing that these women were not that different from you when they started.
