Professor Dame Kay Davies has been nominated for a WISE Lifetime Achievement Award.

The shortlist for this year’s WISE Awards in association with headline sponsors Bloomberg, published today, highlights 28 individuals and organisations for their outstanding contribution to the representation of women in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM).   

The annual WISE Awards celebrate female talent in science, technology and engineering – from classroom to boardroom – and recognise the efforts of advisors, employers and other organisations to encourage and support women in STEM careers. 2014 marks the 30th year of the WISE Campaign and the Awards event is bigger than ever.

The WISE Lifetime Achievement Award celebrates the achievements of a woman who has had a truly outstanding career in science, technology, engineering or mathematics and has inspired and supported other women to follow in her footsteps.
