It looks to inspire young people, to study maths and physics as a gateway into wide-ranging careers whilst also triggering employers to recruit and retain this talent. Ruth was part of the founding team, lead by Chairwomen Edwina Dunn of DunnHumby, that devised the first campaign strategy, advised the delivery team and helped source corporate partners to take it foreward.
