NUS Scotland Women’s Officer Angela Alexander picked up a Herald Diversity Award last week, following her groundbreaking work with the campaign This Ayrshire Girl Can.
This Ayrshire Girl Can is aims to break down gender stereotypes and encourage women into sectors that are traditionally over-represented by men, including science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM).
Receiving such prestigious national recognition is a huge testament to the ground-breaking work of the campaign.
The campaign also received recognition in parliament, as Willie Coffey MSP lodged a motion congratulating the team!
