Debswana, as part of the partnership between De Beers Group and WomEng, has implemented a series of workshops to progress a three-year Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) and Girl/Women in Engineering programme.

The programme is focused on encouraging more women to study STEM subjects, thereby providing them with a wider range of career opportunities and enabling the creation of a diverse engineering workforce to meet the current and future employment needs of the sector and economy at large.

As part of the programme, Debswana has kick-started a series of sessions designed to create awareness of the importance of STEM subjects and provide students with practical tools and routes to access engineering and technology careers. The first of these sessions was held in Jwaneng on September 3, 2019 with 200 female students from four Junior Secondary Schools in and around Jwaneng Mine.
