Event Information

STEM: Jobs for the Girls

The Conference will challenge this misconception, revealing to girls, parents, teachers and career advisors that STEM jobs foster creativity, critical thinking, problem solving skills and collaborative communication. 250 delegates will attend Free of Charge. They will go home inspired, informed and eager to promote the benefits of STEM. Soroptimist International of Richmond and Dales, in partnership with WISE (Women In Science and Engineering) and supported by The Reece Foundation and the Two Ridings Community Foundation, invites you to participate in a one day Northern STEM Learning and Networking Conference for pre-GCSE girl pupils.
