Empowering Futures: STEM Women’s Early 2024 Events across UK and Australia

Dec 29, 2023 EventsIndustry News 3 minutes read

As we begin 2024, it’s time to take stock of the current situation in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM). Whilst STEM-related industries continue to develop and grow at a rapid pace, diversity in STEM lags behind. For women, in particular, progress is slow and hard-won – women still make up just 26% of the UK STEM workforce.  It’s clear we need to see a step-change – so let’s make it happen in 2024!

STEM Women’s networking and recruitment events offer inspiration and empowerment to current STEM students and recent graduates who are hoping to commence successful careers in industry. Check out our review of 2023’s Autumn events to see part of the incredible impact we had last year. To kick off 2024, we’ll be hosting seven fantastic events with locations spanning the UK, as well as Australia. Through these events we create a space for employers and current students or recent graduates to come together to connect, learn, and envision a diverse STEM workforce of the future.
