To sum it all up, these 3 events’ main goal is to inspire and encourage the next generation of women, highlighting what’s ahead of the curve in Science. Don’t miss them if you are in town…

Women in STEM 2015 (20th January 2015 – London)

Only 17% of the STEM workforces in the UK are women. Yet, STEM related subjects are key for the British economy. That is why the British Government has decided to get more actively involved and promote the careers of women in STEM.

In mid-January 2015 it will host a “Women in STEM” forum which will explore “the newest policies and initiatives aimed at getting more women into STEM careers”. The forum will also showcase best practice case studies that aim to “inspire future action to deliver the next generation of scientist and engineers in the UK”.

It will address a broad range of issues from “The Role of Higher Education in Inspiring Next Generation of Women in STEM” to “Increasing Diversity in the workforce”.

The event will mix both keynote speakers, networking session and Q&A sessions. Click here to discover the complete program!

ICWSET 2015: International Conference on Women in Science, Engineering and Technology (March 2015 – Dubai)

The World Academy of Science, Engineering and Technology holds many conferences every year, all around the world. In 2015, it will organize a special conference in Dubai, dedicated to women in science.

ICWEST 2015 will bring together scientists, researchers and research scholars to “exchange and share their experiences and research results about all aspects of Women in Science”. The conference committee is made up of a panel of highly qualified scientists from all over the world, who are interested in the topic and ready to take action in order to help advance the place of women in science.

If you cannot travel to Dubai this year, maybe you’ll be able to attend one of the upcoming ICWSET in Oslo, Los Angeles or Boston (2016, 2017 and 2018 respectively)!
