What to Expect from The Women in STEM Conference 2019
With the Annual Women in STEM Conference rapidly approaching, we thought we would share a few thoughts on what to expect on the day.
On May 22nd we see the return of the Women in STEM Conference in Central London at the Grange Tower Bridge Hotel. With even more speakers and delegates than last year.
New Bespoke Breakout Streams
For the first time, this year, the conference will be hosting dedicated breakout streams for the ‘Education Sector’ and for ‘Employers’. The afternoon sessions will provide delegates with the opportunity to gain specific insights into key issues and topics for women in STEM in each sector. Speakers will be presenting case studies of best practice demonstrating successful examples of promoting the progression of girls and women in STEM and how delegates could use these examples to implement similar strategies in their own organisations.
This year we will be hosting 21 speakers, all leading experts from the STEM sector. Keynote Speakers from STEM Learning, WISE, WES and The Royal Society will be sharing the latest policy updates. Case studies, workshops and panel discussions will provide examples of best practice, covering key topics such as: enhancing diversity, supporting pipeline progression and ensuring the improved uptake of girls and women entering STEM education and careers.
Focusing on Solutions not Problems
The aim of the conference this year is to focus on the positive change that is happening for Women in STEM and how it is coming about, rather than dwelling on the problems. In order to tackle key issues facing women in STEM, ideas and solutions need to be shared. The conference will offer the opportunity to network and share ideas with others in the sector, to ensure the long-term participation, recruitment and advancement of Women in STEM.
