Attracting & Retaining Women in STEM Conference

Nov 25, 2018 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm

Workforce diversity in the Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) sector is a major challenge. Careers are male dominated; just 9% of Engineering, 19% of Computer studies and 38% of Maths graduates are female. In fact, just 13% of the entire UK STEM workforce is female. Forward Ladies want to challenege and change these statistics.

We invite Senior leaders from business, academia and policy to attend and represent their organisations.

The action packed day offers a  schedule featuring insightful and thought provoking presentations from women paving the way forward within industry, audience q&a sessions and fantastic networking opportunities.
