Women in Science: STEM Careers Talks

A series of sessions from inspiring women currently working in STEM industries, ranging from PHD students to high-altitude medicine in the British Army.

Monday 7 June 2021

Open to all Year 10 – 12 students, the upcoming talks will provide students with a valuable opportunity to engage with successful scientists from a variety of career backgrounds. This visibility of female role models in the STEM industries is incredibly important as Mr. Rubbo, one of the organisers of the events, explains: 'with only 30% people in professional science and technical jobs are women, we want to promote some amazing careers out there to our students so that they can see the variety of opportunities available to them.'

Each session will run from 3:15 to 4:00 pm on the following Tuesdays:

  • 8th June - Annie Clark Massey, a nuclear physics graduate scheme employee and women in science outreach ambassador.
  • 15th June - 2Lt L Price Royal Army Medical Corps, a medical support officer in the British army airborne medical regiment and current medical student.
  • 22nd June - Freya Cleasby and Beth Ritchie, PhD researchers in chemistry at the University of Sheffield, discussing the ever strengthening place of women in academia.
  • 29th June - Ruth Brown, Royal Navy diagnostic radiographer, discussing women in physics and allied health care professions.
