Smashing Stereotypes emphasizes the different routes and skills needed to work in rewarding STEM careers through eye-catching design and people-led stories which are then made available as year-round resources for teachers and educators.

Hannah Russell, CEO of the BSA explained: "As we mark five years of our Smashing Stereotypes campaign, we’re proud to continue celebrating the remarkable stories of trailblazers working across science and engineering, who so powerfully inspire young people about the huge range of careers out there.

"In keeping with the British Science Week theme of ‘Time,’ our profiles from this year’s campaign show us that everyone has a unique journey into in the world of STEM. We are grateful to L’Oréal, 3M and Urenco who have partnered with us to champion their diverse and innovative workforces, and who pride themselves on their work to drive change in the future."

Rosie Salkeld, our Social Impact Lead, said "At Urenco, we're committed to nurturing the next generation of scientists and engineers through our partnership with the Brtitish Science Association via education, role models and empowering young people.

"By supporting this year's Smashing Stereotypes campaign, we are helping to dispel misconceptions about scientists and drive towards a truly inclusive STEM environment. This is crucial for inspiring young individuals to envision themselves in the sector, bridging the gap between their school lessons and potential careers."
