For many years, we have heard about how the number of girls and women studying and taking up careers in science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) is woefully low. And for years, there have been calls to action, pleas for something to be done.
We are now at a point where there are many grassroots and industry-focused groups are working incredibly hard to support, inspire and celebrate women in STEM. But despite their success, they all lack one thing: funding.
This evening workshop will tackle this problem head-on. Using a facilitated, open space format, attendees will drive the discussion, defining their own agenda and then breaking into groups for in-depth conversations, before finally sharing ideas with the group.
We are especially keen to attract representatives of large businesses, corporate social responsibility experts, philanthropists, funders, grant-givers and charitable institutions.
