Interested in the impact of science, entrepreneurship and innovation in international engagement? Come along to our panel discussion event! We are delighted to announce a tremendous collaboration between St Anne’s College, the SIU and OxFEST to discuss and promote gender equality and diversity in STEMM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics and Medicine). Speakers will discuss the status and future of women in STEMM, the key findings of Elsevier’s report: Gender in the Global Research Landscape, as well as the importance of developing entrepreneurial skills to undertake initiatives like the African Science Academy, a girls science and technology school based in Ghana. Join us to discuss your experience, challenges and how we can encourage and develop equality, diversity and inclusivity in STEMM.
