At STEM Women, we specialise in addressing the gender imbalance in the fields of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM). Our mission is to empower women and non-binary individuals, whether they are students, recent graduates, or experienced professionals, by providing them with unique opportunities to connect, learn, and grow within the STEM community.

Recognising that, currently, women make up just 26% of the STEM workforce in the UK, we understand the urgent need to foster a more diverse and representative workforce. We offer a platform to network with industry leaders, gain insights from diverse role models, and create new connections.
At the core of our initiatives are our graduate careers events, women in tech community events, research, job board, and innovative digital marketing services. Through these channels, we bridge the gap between employers and our STEM Women communities.

Proudly contributing to a more diverse and inclusive STEM workforce, we focus on inspiring students and graduates, particularly those from underrepresented groups, to access careers in STEM-related industries.
Our careers events and advertised roles cover UK, Europe, and Australia, and the impact of these events has continued to grow, with over 80 successful events to date, connecting thousands of future STEM Women with invaluable employment opportunities, networks, and mentors.

Waters Corporation
STEM Women have regularly welcomed Waters to our events, both online and in person, with a partnership running since 2021. Recently, Waters recruited Chichi, a PhD graduate in Mechanical Engineering for one of their software engineering roles.

“We would 100% recommend STEM Women to other employers. The events are really well organised, enabled people from across our company to be involved and was a really easy way to meet and engage with qualified and talented people.” Laura Spyrou, Talent Acquisition Manager, Waters Corporation

"The event looked like a great opportunity for us to meet talented individuals ready to consider what was next for them after graduation. At Waters we use science to solve problems that matter and we are keen to meet people from all kinds of backgrounds and disciplines to support us in our mission – the event was a great opportunity for us to do this! The event was extremely well organised and our virtual stall looked great – we could share information about our company as well as relevant vacancies."

"On the day we had a speaker, Stephanie Turnbull, who shared her career history and what she has learnt throughout her journey in STEM, as well as being part of the Q&A panel. Stephanie really enjoyed engaging with the other speakers and students, and we had some great feedback after the event. The platform was very easy to use and we were able to set up our stall with information about the attendees, life at Waters and relevant jobs in advance of the day. On the day we could reach out to attendees via a number of methods which was great; we took direct questions from people “visiting” the stall and also reached out to people on email and direct message to entice people to find out more about the company. We had a number of video as well as webchat chats and followed up with everyone after the event."

Amber Harrison, MChem student at the University of Manchester, secured her dream graduate role at PwC after attending a STEM Women event. PwC exhibited at the event and delivered an employer talk.

"This was a great opportunity to hear about a graduate’s first-hand experience in the company and made me feel motivated to apply."

“During the STEM Women event, PwC hosted a live speaker session, and the representative discussed the different graduate roles available. I found myself interested in the technology and digital roles and was encouraged by the speaker to apply despite not having a technology background. This was a great opportunity to hear about a graduate’s first-hand experience in the company and made me feel motivated to apply. Previously, I had never dreamed of working for one of the Big Four without having an accountancy or finance background. I was really impressed by the sound of the community and team-based culture at PwC and the various progression opportunities that the graduate scheme could lead on to. During the event, I started a webchat with a PwC representative and asked lots of questions about the roles available, what they involved and what a typical working day looks like at PwC, etc. All of the representatives were very friendly and helpful; no question was a silly question. I was encouraged to apply and guided through what the typical application process looks like. Most of all, it was very interesting to speak to someone who currently works in the role I was interested in and hear about their first-hand experiences and what they love most about working at PwC.

“Before the event, I felt a bit lost with regards to job applications. I have a chemistry background but knew I didn’t want to work in a lab or do a PhD like most of my other course-mates. In some ways, I felt like I had wasted my degree on a subject I didn’t plan on working within! I’ve always had a passion for technology and I’m currently taking a Nanotechnology unit at university, so I decided to look further into the technology graduate schemes available for my background. The graduate scheme I have chosen will allow me to explore my interest in tech and innovation, and also work towards various technology qualifications.

“I found the event super helpful and I am so grateful to everyone involved. I found it very insightful and had the opportunity to talk to women from lots of different industries and backgrounds. I learned about graduate jobs I had never even heard of before and was given advice about what to expect during the application processes. The event was very well organised and we were all made to feel very welcome, encouraged to ask questions and get involved by the host, Sophie. I would recommend any students who are interested in the STEM Women events to register and attend, whether you know exactly what you want to do when you graduate or if you were like me and had no idea where to get started! It’s a great chance to speak to reps from lots of different companies and find out more about jobs you may not know even exist. It’s also really comforting to hear from speakers’ personal experiences and find out exactly what the roles available actually involve, which sometimes isn’t clear on a job description! Personally, one of the best things about the day was feeling reassured that I could be successful in an area outside of my degree discipline. I’m so grateful for this event and for all of the lovely speakers”
