Cardiff event aimed at promoting science jobs to women

Why do many women decide not to pursue careers in science and technology?

Across Wales, there is a shortage of women working in these sectors and research shows it is often a lack of confidence that has put girls off.

On Wednesday, an event in Cardiff aimed to try and inspire 15 to 22-year-olds who want to explore careers in the science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) sectors.
