by Guest Blogger: PhilipB 1. February 2010 12:22


Unemployed female science and engineering graduates have an opportunity to improve their skills and enhance their CVs in a Leicester-based project. For more information leave your message at and we'll respond shortly.

GreenSTEM is an initiative run by LeicestHERday and the British Science Association to help unemployed female STEM graduates in Leicester and Leicestershire to:

  • develop innovative business ideas for green-themed products and services 

  • support each other in a network receive training in business, communication, web and marketing skills

  • experience presenting ideas to the public and businesses

  • enter for the title of ‘GreenSTEM Entrepreneur 2010’ and a cash prize.

In addition, applicants who have been in receipt of JobSeekers Allowance for 6 months or more will be paid a salary.

The project is especially interested in engaging women from ethnic backgrounds or with a disability, but will be happy to consider any science or engineering female graduate.

Entrepreneurs will be supported by their own private network, mentors, training (both on-line and live in Leicester), and by supporting each other.

Further details from the GREENstem website This project is generously supported by a grant the UK Resource for Women and is run by the LeicestHerDay Trust and the British Science Association in association with the University of Leicester.
