On Wednesday 13th October, we are hosting our sixth event of the autumn season. This event is focused on England and Wales, excluding London, and is perfect for students and recent graduates who are looking to start their careers in a STEM industry, who identify as female or non-binary.
The event will help attendees to network with top employers via webchat, voice and video call, apply for roles and internships, hear inspiring talks and presentations and take part in an insightful panel session with women working in STEM.
We have been running events in regions across the UK since autumn 2018. Our 2018 and 2019 events took place in Bridgewater Hall (Manchester), The IET and The Botanic Gardens (Birmingham) and WeTheCurious (Bristol). 1,125 students registered for one of our three in-venue regional events in 2019. 1,921 registered for one of our three online events in 2020. There will be one single event combining all the regions in 2021.
For this event, we have already signed up 21 exhibitors to this event, with more still to be announced.

Addressing the Gender Imbalance in STEM UK
According to a WISE report, from 2019 to 2020 just 24% of the UK STEM workforce was made up of women. STEM Women Events strive to bridge the gender gap in STEM industries and work towards encouraging more women to choose a career in STEM.
