The WISE Awards 2013 is a fantastic opportunity to recognise the successes of women in STEM, and this year there has been a record number of nominations across the ten categories. 


The WISE Awards 2013 will be held on the evening of 14 November, in the inspirational setting of the Science Museum itself. The winners will be announced and presented with their awards by WISE’s Royal Patron, HRH The Princess Royal.

The WISE Campaign promotes female talent in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics fields, and is passionate about connecting young people with role models, promoting networking events, and providing unconscious bias training and consultancy across the UK.

The WISE Awards developed from the previous “Women of Outstanding Achievement Award”, which began in 2006. Currently in its second year running, the WISE Awards 2013 is set to be the biggest celebration yet, with around 400 guests from a diverse range of STEM backgrounds in academia, business and media set to attend.

In addition, this year the Media Award has been introduced to the 2013 WISE Awards. This award aims to celebrate the dedicated outreach of science communicators across a breadth of modern topics, alongside the Girl Award, for girls and young women who have demonstrated an exceptional potential within STEM in both their studies and their personal interests.
