WISE has invited our Royal Patron, HRH The Princess Royal, to open the event, and to meet girls from schools in Wales who have been inspired by Cardiff University and Swansea University to find out more about STEM careers via the WISE People Like Me campaign. The aim of the event is to capture the excitement, rewards and growing opportunities for women with STEM qualifications. The event will be an opportunity for education, business and public sector partners to share practical initiatives which are making a difference to the recruitment, retention and advancement of women scientists and engineers in Wales. We are planning that the Chief Scientific Adviser for Wales, Professor Julie Williams CBE, will chair a panel on the business benefits of gender balanced teams. We will invite the audience to make a personal pledge of commitment to action in line with the recommendations of the Talented Women for a Successful Wales report, published in March 2016.
Cost: Free – Invite only
