Equate Scotland Student Groups & Champions
Having a support network at college or university can be really beneficial to students mental health and wellbeing. Having the support of peers, of students who are in a similar field of study, or who are interested in similar activities can help students to feel supported and included.
Equate Scotland have a useful guide to support students to set up their own women and non-binary people in STEM groups and societies at their college or university. The guide can be downloaded below. They also have a list of established student groups.
By joining a group on campus, students can get to know other women or non-binary people studying similar subjects, as well as run social and industry events and build connections with academic staff and graduates from the institution.
Equate Scotland also run Equate Student Champions. They are paid ambassadors within their college or university, recruited by their university or college and currently studying a STEM subject. All the Student Champions are supported by Equate Scotland and given skills and training to help them in their role.
