OxFEST is bringing a fantastic all-day programme to you in our 7th Annual Conference, with the theme STEMpower Her: Together We Rise. This conference aims to give you ways to harness and share your individual strengths and experiences in order to collectively lift women in STEM.

The movement to improve diversity in STEM thrives when we all work together. Join us at St Anne’s College on Saturday 24th February for a jam-packed day of insightful discussions and mentoring from various industry experts, interactive workshops, interview practice, skills preparation and much, much more! This event is open to all.



This year, the theme of our conference is STEMpower Her: Together We Rise. Our conference agenda focuses on stimulating discussion on the following three topics:

  • Awareness of gender diversity in STEM fields

  • Tools and resources for career advancement

  • Public impact and engagement


We have designed a rich programme to make this conference a truly valuable experience for you. You can expect:

  • Opportunities to hear from high profile speakers, including Dame Mary Archer, the chair of Science Museum Group

  • Practical workshops to hone your skills, such as Data Science for All and Entrepreneurship.

  • Plenty of activities to engage with leading companies, such as EY, Splunk, Accenture and other industry giants.

  • Chances for students to present your work as a poster or in an oral presentation. Top runner prizes up for grabs!
