WISE and Women Like Me’s Sarah Behenna on the My Skills My Life launch

Posted on

WISE Associate, WISE Bristol Hub founder and Women Like Me consultant Sarah Behenna has recently been involved in the development of the new WISE digital platform My Skills My Life. Aimed at encouraging 11-19 year old girls into STEM, My Skills My Life launched yesterday. Sarah tells us more about it in this guest post.

Yesterday marked the launch of a new interactive game from WISE called My Skills My Life which helps girls to discover what they’re good at, and then match them up to rewarding careers in STEM. The launch took place at UTC Reading, where 38 girls got to be the first in the country to try the game out, and then meet people in industry who share the same skill sets as them to see how they use their skills in their careers. Afterwards, the girls got to meet WISE’s role patron HRH The Princess Royal, who asked them about what they’d like to do in the future.

Complete our quiz to discover your personality type, and see how your skills match up to Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM) careers. Connect with real people in STEM careers who have the same personality as you. What do they do? What do they earn? How did they get there? It’s all about your skills, and how you can make them work for your life.
