Entain and F1 team open doors for women

Entain and the McLaren F1 team are launching applications for their joint Returnship programme to help reignite the careers of women returning to roles in science, technology, engineering and mathematics.

While the representation of women in STEM is steadily increasing, there remains a significant gender imbalance – in the UK, just 26 per cent of STEM graduates are women and only 24 per cent of the STEM workforce are women.

There is an urgent need to change the perceptions of careers in STEM, open more opportunities for women to pursue careers in the field and help both women and men thrive equally in STEM.

As 26 per cent of sports bettors globally are now female and F1 continues to experience a rise in female fans, with approximately 40 per cent of fans now female, it has become even more important for both companies to reflect the customer experience by having a diverse workforce. The Returnship programme is another step in the right direction to making this change.

Jette Nygaard-Andersen, Entain CEO, said: “The fusion of technology, sport and entertainment and desire to support talented women re-entering the workforce meant that launching this brand-new programme with our partner, McLaren, is an obvious step.

“We share a passion and commitment for giving women a platform to reignite their careers in STEM and hope that through this programme we not only support a generation of ambitious women now but inspire future generations of girls to land their dream STEM role.”
