In the second part of our tech career fair we will be inviting over 200 women to build their professional networks and join a community of women in tech. This evening event will feature a keynote speech, plenty of skills sessions, employer insights, an interactive panel session and the opportunity to network with employers and fellow professionals.

The STEM Women Working in Technology event will address a number of issues relevant to professionals in the early years of their career. The topics covered will include practical careers advice, tips on managing a team, advice relating to professional qualifications, how to maintain a good work/life balance, how to deal with imposter syndrome and an insight into what tech employers are looking for.

We will also provide a selection of delicious canapes, soft drinks and alcoholic beverages to enjoy throughout the evening.

At STEM Women we’re on a mission to address the gender imbalance in STEM in the UK. Last year, we held ten events in different cities across the UK and Ireland and introduced over 3,000 students to over 180 employers.

Our events have helped many university students and graduates find their ideal job within companies who are committed to creating a gender-balanced workforce. We can’t wait to continue building our network of women in STEM.
