Sanguine is a monthly radio show interviewing female scientists and organisations which deal with women in this sector. It provides a platform for diverse groups to see women in the science sector represented. We have interviewed Maashuda Glenross, a Lecturer in the Vision Imaging and Autonomous Systems (VIAS) group at Loughborough University, Ivvet Modinou, Head of Engagement at British Science Association, Sue Black from Techmums and many others. Sanguine aims to engage in how these women first took up science and encourage women and girls listening to do the same. The show goes out on NMFM an area with listeners of diverse social and ethnic backgrounds .
