The picture accompanying this story shows some of our employees who make up part of the one million, and we also have blogs from some of our employees to highlight their work and how they came to work in their particular fields.
Penny Rathbone is our polymers expert. She has been working with the Cumbria Resilience Forum, where here knowledge of all thing plastic, rubber and seal related has helped ensure that our key workers have continued to have supplies of safe personal protective equipment.
Rebecca Weston, our Chief Operating Officer has blogged about the importance of the day, and how she is keen for more people to know about the opportunities available to them.
She also outlines how she got into a career in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM), through a route which included teaching English in Eastern Europe.

WISE is a fantastic organisation with an important and laudable aim, to encourage more women into the field. I’m delighted that Sellafield Ltd has joined the campaign and hope that as many of our employees as possible support ‘one of the million’.
People can also share their photos with WISE. They can be added to the WISE campaign pages at www.wisecampaign.org.uk.
