In Conversation: Women in STEM at Museum of Science and Industry, Castlefield, 8 March 2018 - Visit now

From its origins in the Age of Enlightenment right up to the present, the field of science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) has been overwhelmingly dominated by men. Despite great efforts in recent years to reverse this trend, still only 13% of the overall UK STEM workforce is female.

As part of Wonder Women 2018, attend and take part in a special panel discussion and debate exploring the opportunities and challenges facing women working in STEM careers, and celebrating some of their most important contributions and achievements. The event is held at the Museum of Science and Industry and marks International Women’s Day and British Science Week.
