Discover how women are using tech to change the world and are encouraging more girls to join them. Since Ada Lovelace, the world’s first computer programmer, women have made a massive contribution to the digital realm – but they are still an unharnessed force in STEM industries (science, technology, engineering, maths), making up only 14.4% of the workforce in 2015. How and why are these potential brainiacs being discouraged? In this session, find out what the 14.4% are doing.

Speakers include: Dr Sarah Bailey, Senior Lecturer in the Department of Pharmacy and Pharmacology at the University of Bath; Athena Livesy, an award winning UK and European Charted Principal Engineering Geologist; Monica Jayaprakesh, a Graduate Civil Engineer at Amey Plc; Sue Evans, who began her career as a rubber extrusion technologist, later moving into optical fibre, which brought her first opportunity to commission a brand new factory; and Michelle Dow, Managing Director of All About STEM.
