About Women in STEM Summit 2022
The inaugural Women in STEM Summit 2022 showcased the trailblazers leading the way across science, technology, engineering and mathematics. Our speakers included educators, tech leaders, innovators and pioneers who shared their experiences, advice and insights on advancing and connecting women to empower them with the technology and skills necessary for a better future.
Breaking the biases in education looked at the eco-system of programmes and initiatives that are in place from early childhood all the way through the primary, secondary and third level education system. It also looked at the best competitions, workshops, apprenticeship programmes, fairs and festivals that are supported by government, in collaboration with some of Ireland’s leading tech companies in order to attract, retain and promote gender diversity in STEM subjects.
Breaking the biases in industry showcased the top companies breaking the biases and applauded the women (and men) within them who are promoting equal opportunities and ensuring a diverse workforce. What are the next steps for businesses and employers? How can we break the biases to ensure equal access to STEM careers for women with disabilities, members of the LBGT+ community, ethnic and religious groups as well as those from less well-off socio-economic backgrounds?
In a series of SheTalksTech we heard from CEO’s of some of Ireland’s leading companies on how the digital transformation is fundamentally reshaping big industries such as telecoms, finance, medical devices, pharma and construction. We also heard from the trailblazers shaping the path of lifestyle businesses, such as fashion, food, health, travel, media and entertainment.
We showcased the rising stars of STEM in our Meet the STEMettes session and in our Female Founders series we heard from founders / CEO’s who set up successful innovative, technology companies within the last decade.
The Women in STEM Summit is a key event for all those championing diversity, equity and inclusion throughout their teams, organisations and industries. It brings together the full range of stakeholders including policy makers, educators, business leaders and the trailblazers leading the way across STEM. It provides a platform where they can constructively challenge current ways of thinking and offer new perspectives.
