Women in STEM and STEM Careers Fair

Are you keen to inspire the next generation to consider a career in STEM? Do you know any inspiring women working in STEM?

As educators and employers we need to come together to do everything we can to encourage more young people in the UK to consider a STEM Career. We're holding our annual STEM employer roundtable and Women in STEM event, and for the very first time this year we are also holding a STEM Careers Fair as part of the day.

We are calling upon all STEM employers, professional bodies and of course women in STEM to come along and support us!

We have over 5,000 students studying for courses in the Faculty of Science & Health (of which 2,680 declared their sex at birth as female).
