Call for national push to get more women into sciences
Simon NevilleNational initiatives are needed to tackle the under-representation of women in certain business sectors such as science, technology, engineering and maths, a group of MPs has said.
The business select committee has urged ministers to launch a nationwide careers service and work with schools to encourage more girls to take up science subjects at A-level.
It also said large firms must be more open about pay disparity between the sexes and willing to adopt flexible working hours to encourage women back into work after going on maternity breaks.
