Addressing the Gender Imbalance in STEM London
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.

STEM Women Events
We held our first London STEM Women events in autumn 2018 at BMA House and The Science Museum. We registered over 400 students and 17 employers for BMA House, then over 600 students and 31 employers for the Science Museum. Following this success, we hosted two more events in 2019, one at the Congress Centre, which attracted 676 sign-ups and 22 exhibitors, and a second at the Science Museum with over 600 registered students and 19 exhibitors.
Our 2020 event was moved online and attracted a record number of attendees. The online format meant that students studying at universities across the UK, but intending to work in London, could attend. We had over 860 registered students and 20 exhibitors!
Alongside the STEM Women London Event, we are also hosting a UK Financial Services Industry Event, a UK Technology Industry Event, a UK Engineering event, and general STEM careers events for Scotland, England and Wales, Ireland and the Benelux Region.
