The Equate Student Network Conference & Awards 2020 will bring together women studying STEM to celebrate your passion for your subject, connect with inspiring women professionals and enhance your career development.
The conference will include interactive workshops to help you develop your skills and an employer panel session to ask those burning questions about how to promote girls into STEM and what it’s really like working in these industries.
Our keynotes speakers will be Mamta Singhal and Victoria Hamilton. Read their bios here.
The conference will give students the opportunity to network with women STEM professionals and employers over lunch and a mini employer’s fair to find out about placement and graduate roles.
The winner of our Equate Student Awards will also be announced at this conference. This award celebrates women students and institutions who have gone above and beyond to support, mentor or promote women in STEM.
After the conference we will be hosting an Steminist Quiz where alumni and current students from the network will join teams and play for a prize over drinks and nibbles. Come along for an evening of drinks, nibbles and networking to celebrate the diversity in Scotland’s thriving and vibrant STEM sector. If you are interest,register here.

We are extremely sad at the passing of Katherine Johnson, but glad to know of her huge contributions towards NASA, computing and the first moon walk. The voices of women in STEM (especially BME women) go largely unseen, together let's make this change. https://www.theguardian.com/science/2020/feb/24/katherine-johnson-obituary
