SRG are proud to sponsor In2scienceUK as their chosen Early Talent charity partner in 2022, along with Impellam Group STEM brands, Lorien (technology and digital) and Carbon60 (engineering).

Our focus on supporting early talent, whilst boosting diversity and inclusion in science, technology, engineering, and maths, fits perfectly with In2ScienceUK’s mission to give students from disadvantaged backgrounds high-quality opportunities and support, as they start a career in STEM.  

How will we support early talent and diversity in STEM?

Our partnership will offer a variety of inspiring work placement programmes to a group of 16-19 year-olds wanting to work in STEM, along with skills workshops, career pathways and insights sessions. We believe that supporting the next generation of researchers and innovators from all backgrounds is the key to breaking down huge social barriers and creating a more diverse workforce for the future.

Why is In2scienceUK’s work so critical?

There are 3 key reasons that In2ScienceUK’s work is so important, and why they need the support of industry professionals, donations, and sponsorship.

  • STEM skills shortage: There is currently an annual estimated shortage of 173,000 skilled workers in STEM which is set to grow. We need to increase the UK pipeline to support our people and build our economy.
  • Social mobility: STEM workers typically earn 20% more than those in other sectors.  Supporting young people from low-income backgrounds, helps fight inequality and promote social mobility. 
  • Diversity: Did you know businesses with a more diverse and inclusive workforce perform better financially, have higher staff retention, and increase creativity and problem-solving? Creating diversity in STEM is critical.
