Yusra Hussain

Yusra has taken part in many different projects in the past 2 years supporting women from diverse backgrounds. This includes an E-mentoring program for children aged 14-16 in an East London school and a STEM mentoring program for Shell women in the early part of their careers. This initiative was set up to connect young women in STEM with senior women and men interested in helping them develop professionally, with a specific lens on STEM and the challenges associated with it. Yusra launched the inaugural Women in STEM @ Shell awards and hosted Shell’s largest Bring Your Child to Work Day, with 150 children between the ages of 9-15, taking part in STEM workshops, talks and showcasing both female and male role-models. In response to COVID19, Yusra is working with Robogals as a special program lead to bring online STEM content to girls across the world.
