The UKRC (UK Resource Centre) is a UK organisation for the provision of advice, services and policy consultation regarding the under-representation of women in science, engineering, technology and the built environment (SET).[1] It is funded by the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills and was launched in 2004.[2]

The central base is located in Bradford in the North of England but there are also centres in South East England, South Yorkshire, Scotland and Wales.[3]

The UKRC works to promote gender equality in SET with employers and professional bodies; education institutions; women's organisations and networks; policy institutes; sector skills councils; the government and many others.[4] This includes implementing the Athena SWAN Charter.

In 2011 it took over the leadership of the WISE Campaign and became UKRC-WISE. In late 2012 it took on the WISE name.
