The fifth Equate Student Network Conference & Awards 2020 is next week in Glasgow with a fantastic line-up. Travel expenses covered, see below
This free conference brings together women studying STEM to celebrate their passion for their subject, connect with inspiring women professionals and enhance their career development. This is an opportunity for them to build their network and practice some of the skills you have been talking to them about in your 1-2-1 sessions. The conference includes:
Interactive workshops (Assertiveness in the workplace, Interview Skills, Negotiation Skills and Intro to Design Thinking) to help students develop their skills.
An employer panel session so they can ask those burning questions about how to promote girls into STEM and what it’s really like working in these industries.
Inspiring keynote speakers: Mamta Singhal and Victoria Hamilton. Read their bios here.
An opportunity to network with women STEM professionals and employers ( Barclays, Cala Homes, Dell, FanDuel, Hays, Lloyds, Recoil, Scottish Power and The Data Lab) over lunch and a mini employer’s fair to find out about placement and graduate roles.
This event is open to all women studying STEM and the built environment at colleges and universities in Scotland. They know being out of pocket for travel is an issue, so students travelling out with Glasgow will be reimbursed up to £15 per person. Students travelling from the Highlands and Islands, Dundee and Aberdeen will be reimbursed up to £30 per person. Travel expenses claim forms will be issued to students on the day of the event.
After the conference they will be hosting a Steminist Quiz for women studying/working in STEM or women working on equality in STEM to share their experiences and join forces in teams of five to play for prizes over drinks and nibbles. If you are interested register here.
