What our exhibitors are looking forward to…
Rachel Hollinger, Network Rail:
“We can’t wait to meet the next generation of STEM Women at the Scotland Careers Fair. We have been blown away with the calibre of students we have spoken to at previous fairs and admire their career ambitions and the great questions students have come armed with. The STEM Women’s fair is a brilliant way to share information about the great work we are doing as an organisation as well as promoting the opportunities available to STEM graduates today.”
Hannah Jones, EY:
“We are really excited to attend the STEM Women Scotland event at the end of September as it will be a fantastic opportunity to showcase our diverse culture and for us to meet some extremely talented students. We look forward to answering any questions students may have about EY and our roles. We hope this event allows us to excite students about applying to EY so they can become part of building a better working world.”
“At BlackRock, our mission is simple: we have a responsibility to help people build a better financial future. To achieve this, our workforce must reflect the diversity of our clients so that we can bring a wealth of perspectives and insights to solve their unique, complex challenges. We are excited to be partnering with STEM Women again to highlight our inspirational women in STEM and provide an insight into what it means to be part of the world’s largest asset manager.”
Addressing the Gender Imbalance in STEM Scotland
This event will strive to bridge the gap between talented female graduates and employers, starting conversations and boosting equality in the future workforce.
In the UK, just 22% of the STEM workforce is made up of women, according to the Office for National Statistics Labour Force Survey. In Scotland, just 19% of engineers are women and 10% of senior managers in STEM professions are women.
