A group of our 4th year students visited the RDS today to learn more about the potential career opportunities that are available to women in the fields of science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM).
The ‘I WISH’ conference, now in it’s sixth year, is an initiative to inspire, encourage and motivate young female students to pursue careers in STEM.
The students started their day by attending a talk by some inspiring woman who have built careers in the STEM sectors. This was followed by a brief panel discussion.
The students then moved on to the I Wish Exhibition Area, to engage first-hand with STEM industry exhibitors and partners, such as Google, Carton Saloon, Dell and LinkedIn.
We hope all students enjoyed the trip and that they found it informative and inspiring.
