For Students and Graduates
By signing up as a STEM Women member you will receive exclusive invites to our free Community Careers Events and receive our monthly newsletter which contains job vacancies and industry updates.
Our events are completely free to attend and take place throughout the year in various cities. You can meet with employers, hear inspirational keynote speakers and participate in panel discussions.
Gender imbalance: the impact on STEM students and graduates
As any female student who has sat down in a computer science, engineering, physics or mathematics lecture will know, there are far more male students on many STEM courses. This imbalance continues beyond graduation and you may be disappointed to see that women make up just 24% of people employed in STEM industries. The figures are particularly low across IT and Engineering industries.
Our Events: what you can expect
Our STEM Women events are free for students and we run autumn events in most UK regions and in Ireland. We provide coaches to transport students from universities that are based near to each of our event venues.
Attendees can meet with employers who are targeting female applicants (although our events are open to any student regardless of gender), hear inspirational keynote speakers and participate in panel discussions. Ultimately, however, our events inspire students to apply for graduate roles and could result in the job offer that you are hoping for!
