People Like Me is an intervention to support the increase of women and girls into STEM education and careers. As such it sits in a long tradition of efforts - in the UK and globally - to tackle gender inequality in the study of STEM subjects, and leading to employment/careers in the scientific, engineering and technology sectors.

People Like Me is both a resource and a strategy with a number of potential points of impact. At the core is the concept that raising awareness of the range of possible careers and jobs in STEM will encourage girls to continue with studying science subjects in school, and also aspire to careers in these sectors.

This report is the outcome of an independent evaluation carried out by the Open University into the impact and effectiveness of the intervention.
