Jobs for the Boys?

1 June 2012

The Set to Lead project was funded by the HE STEM project and delivered by a collaboration between UCL and Katalytik.

The project set out to investigate and address the differences in the transition between men and women from engineering and technology degrees into relevant employment. The project outputs were shaped by interactive discussions with employers, academics and students. Resources focused on embedding inclusive messages within them and on improving the levels of personal insights of both male and female students.

The aim was to raise awareness in universities of the growing need in industry for less transactional and more of a transformational style of management and leadership, the latter style being associated more often with women, and the use of strengths and values based tools.
