The Women In STEM society is also relatively new having been established in the 2019-20 academic year. Women in STEM aims to shed light on and celebrate the achievements women have made in STEM. The society targets women who study Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics and plans on having talks and society meetings where we learn about the achievements of other women in the mentioned fields. We aim to create a safe space for women to discuss current issues and future plans, to help ensure the upcoming steps in our careers are easier. The ‘stem’ 😉 of our society is to not only have an education platform but rather to create a family in an enjoyable and social environment.
