National Women and Girls in Science Day
"Women in STEM" conference at Imperial College...
Whilst I knew that I was interested in the field of STEM, and had an idea of roughly what area of STEM particularly interested me, I found that the "Women in STEM" conference at Imperial college not only assured me of the potential to be successful in it (as two of the female speakers were working in said field), but it also encouraged me to consider a wider range of STEM areas, which I never would have considered otherwise.
I would say that the main things which I gained from the event were firstly, the extent to which women are more than able to excel in Science and Technology, knowledge of just how broad the STEM field can be, and that the (subject) choices we have made at this age do not actually constrain us in our future careers.
