Rolle Marquee, Plymouth University, PL4 8AA 

In excess of 630,000 women work in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) occupations in the UK, including thousands of ground-breaking and innovative researchers, examining subjects as diverse and varied as the cognitive development of infants or developing code for the latest smartphone software. 


Building on the success of the 2016 event, Plymouth University is proud to present this Women in STEM conference. 

The event will bring together students, employers, teachers, post-doctoral and early career researchers as well as experienced academics to share experiences and suggest actions for women and girls in STEM. 

Keynote abstract 

Women in STEM: Today. Tomorrow. The Future. Our Society needs you! (Speaker: Rubi Kaur) 
In today’s fast moving technology world, no one should we left behind. Our society needs Women in STEM to be part of this incredible journey towards the next technology revolution. We need a pipeline of the next generation Women entrepreneurs, Women innovators and Women tech inventors. With the number of females entering the Tech sector declining in the UK, a radical step change is needed to inspire the next generation of tech entrepreneurs. It is time to focus on the positives, so that we embrace full diversity, harness the greater outcomes and are not to be left behind. It’s time to take our place to help shape the technology landscape and gigabit economy, driven by emerging technologies of automation, artificial intelligence and Big Data.

This event is open to all. Please register your attendance via this link
