In the last month we also welcome Daniel Wood, COO of Ukie and Ruth Falconer, Head of Division: Computing & Mathematics at Abertay University.

We also give thanks to Deputy CEO, Leigh Jackson who is standing down after 3 years in the role because of additional overseas work assignments. Leigh was leading the Mentoring Sub-Group and has done significant work to take the organisation forward. We also give thanks and say goodbye to Marie Stukoff of the University of Salford as her work takes her more towards the campaign to see more Women in Science and Engineering (WISE), as well as the Salford Chapter of the Girls Network – a mentoring scheme for girls.
