The Women & STEM Daring Circle is led by Google in collaboration with American Express, L’Oréal, Sanofi, Orange, Lenovo and Johnson & Johnson. Boston Consulting Group support the Circle as knowledge partner, and Politecnico Milano support the Circle as academic partner.

The Daring Circle recognises the importance of taking a holistic and system view which targets the full breadth of the Women & STEM pipeline simultaneously; from education to the corporate environment and beyond. This circle of partners aims to advance and remove barriers to women’s leadership in science, technology, engineering and mathematics occupations at all levels, thereby increasing women’s impact through STEM and on the future of STEM itself.

Through its three parallel and mutually supportive work-streams, the Daring Circle will collaborate to launch pilot actions that members can volunteer for and learn from as a group, complimenting those actions with research to validate current practices as best practice, provide the basis for adopting new best practices, and to build a campaign around a new positive narrative for Women in STEM.
