Sara Orr-Saiz -Student Project Officer – Connect

Sara is the perfect example of the leaky pipleine in STEM, having gone from top marks in math to all of sudden saying it wasn’t for her at age 11. She has studied a variety of degrees in Spain, the United States and Scotland. She joined Equate Scotland (an organisation that promotes and support women in STEM in Scotland ) in 2015 and has managed the Interconnect Network, Women in Engineering project and Comms and Engagement before working on the Careerwise placement project. She now divides her time between Connect and Equate. Sara has a background in education and gender and has worked in the third sector in four countries for over 10 years.
