You may be interested in a new initiative aimed at getting more secondary age girls inspired to take maths beyond GCSE, and aim for degrees and careers with a significant mathematical content.

The organisation, Maths4Girls, arranges for women in such careers to talk to girls (and boys) in school about their jobs and how they got where they are. A recent podcast discussion on the NCETM website featured the Maths4Girls Project Lead and a teacher from a school that has already had such a visit.
