Bridging the STEM gender gap with STEM Women events this Autumn

10 May, 2019

STEM Women has assisted over 100 graduate employers, helping companies attract female applicants to their graduate scheme, internship and placement opportunities.


STEM Women organises events that bring together female university STEM students and relevant employers at female-friendly community events throughout the UK and Ireland.

Sophie Chadwick, STEM Women Events’ manager, said: "Women are underrepresented in STEM, and we want to grow a community that brings women, who are either studying or have studied a STEM subject, together with employers and inspirational keynote speakers. Our events offer employers, students and graduates with a STEM background a chance to meet and network in a nurturing environment."

This autumn, STEM Women is running seven events across the UK and are holding an event in Dublin for the first time:

List of Events

• 16 October: STEM Women Autumn Community Event, Edinburgh

• 23 October: STEM Women Autumn Community Event, London

• 30 October: STEM Women Autumn Community Event, Manchester

• 5 November: STEM Women Autumn Community Event, Birmingham

• 13 November: STEM Women Autumn Community Event, Bristol

• 20 November: STEM Women Autumn Community Event, Dublin

• 27 November: STEM Women Autumn Community Event, London

All STEM Women events feature the opportunity to network with top employers such as NatWest and KPMG, as well as innovative SMEs, who are looking for talented women to drive their business forward. There are also inspirational talks from influential keynote speakers.

STEM Women has received positive feedback on past events, with Julia Daffy from NatWest stating that the highlight for her was “Meeting so many wonderful women, all very bright and intelligent, who have not perhaps thought about investment banking as a career for them. It’s great to see them come and listen to us and really open their eyes to a career in investment banking”.

Confidence boost

All STEM Women events are free for students, over 1000 STEM students and graduates attended autumn events in 2018. Chika Chima, a chemistry student from the University of East Anglia said of the event she attended: “I think I’ve got a confidence boost and the encouragement to keep going. I was able to speak to so many people who code and who are in the industry, in the careers that I hope to be in one day. Hearing about how they got there was really encouraging to me and making those connections was a great opportunity for me. It’s great to be able to say you know someone who is in the field you want to be in.”
