As TV and new technology evolve together there are more jobs than ever before available to tech savvy specialists in the broadcast industry, yet women only make up 12.8% of the total STEM workforce in the UK. What can the industry do to break down barriers and encourage more women to take up STEM related roles in the TV industry?
