Science, Technology, Engineering, Maths - STEM
We are passionate about STEM! To tackle our current and future global challenges we need a bigger, stronger and more diverse science and engineering workforce. We want to encourage more people to go into STEM careers and support those in science and engineering based professions to fulfil their potential. We do STEM outreach in schools at all levels, speak at conferences about diversity and inclusion in engineering, and provide professional mentoring & coaching for students and professionals in STEM careers.

“Alex was once in my position, she knows what it’s like, she knows what it takes. For me it doesn’t get more real than that. Her words of encouragement and examples have really stuck with me. She inspires me to work hard and smart with my career and studies. She makes being a woman in engineering look easy! I owe a lot of my current confidence with networking and job applications to her”

Why we need a stronger, more diverse STEM workforce...
...To solve our current and future global challenges!
These Sustainable Development Goals were developed by the UN to highlight our global challenges and what we should be aiming for together.
STEM is the key to solving many of these challenges. We need more scientists, engineers and innovators to create and deliver the solutions that will improve our World!
