We all know that there aren't enough women taking up careers in science and technology, often referred to as STEM. But what's being done to improve this and what kind of jobs are available, if it's an area you're interested in? Sarah Pennells is joined in the studio by Benita Mehra, President of Women in Engineering Society, who explains why so few women go into engineering. Anne-Marie Imafidon, Co-founder of Stemette, and Stella Tournier, WISE member STEM Role Model, discuss whether girls are not encouraged enough to take engineering or science subjects at school (or are they not interested?). Meanwhile Sophie Graham, National Careers Service Adviser, looks at the academic route into engineering or science if you decide you want to come to it later in life.

This week, we're going to be taking a closer look at how the referendum will be affecting your own personal finances.

Ryan Heath, Senior EU Correspondent and Associate Editor at Politico Europe, joined Share Radio Morning Money to bring us the sharpest political analysis in the business. Why is it a bad idea to wait too long before ‘pulling the trigger on Article 50?’ Because EU leaders will lose patience and ‘push us out the door’. And why is a General Election later this year dangerous? Because it will be seen as a rerun of the referendum vote.
It's a week since the British people voted to leave the European Union - a decision that sent shudders through global markets. Economic shocks have come thick and fast, and it’s not over yet. Robert Van Egghen has been taking stock of what has happened so far.
