We ran our first North West STEM Women Community Event in Manchester at Bridgewater Hall on the 6th June 2018.
Attendees met with 11 inspiring diversity conscious employers at the event:
Royal Air Force

After hearing a welcome talk from STEM Women attendees heard talks from Automation Logic and KPMG before a fantastic keynote speech from Dr Pragya Agarwal!

Dr Agarwal trained as an Architect and her PhD was in GIS and spatial cognition, grounded in computer science and psychology.
