Did you know 35 percent of all students enrolled in STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) related fields of study are women?

Although progress has been made in the provision of opportunities for women in STEM fields, women and girls continue to be systematically underrepresented as users and leaders in the fields of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. To achieve sustainable development goals, we need to ensure full and equal access to and participation in science for women and girls.

Here at The LK Group, we are immensely proud of our balanced workforce of both young and experienced team members, of whom 42% are women!

Recently, Geo-Environmental Scientist, Beth Ryder was asked to produce a short video for the pupils of Mount St Joseph Catholic High School in Bolton for their Careers and Aspirations Day. Beth talks about her career choices, including her past role as a Zookeeper….how cool Is that?

She also explains the path she took to enable her to access the role she fulfills today for The LK Group.

Check out Beth’s video here.


Well done Beth, we are sure this video will inspire the many female engineers and scientists of the future!
