We’re more than proud of our Student to Stemette ‘more-than-mentoring’ programme and everything our ‘Sherpees’ achieve. From winning Undergraduate of the Year Award for Innovation to becoming Arkwright Fellows. From observing industry on the programme to entering industry and coming back to support the programme. We’re incredibly lucky to be able to support so many young women as part of Deutsche Bank’s Born to Be Citizenship programme. This year, for the third time we took 5 Sherpees on a trip to a tech conference in the US. Dreamforce is the annual conference of Stemettes’ long-term partner Salesforce – a celebration […]

This post has been written by Hina, 17 who attended our Meet the Stemettes panel event at NTT on 26th October.

What’s more fun than using apps? Making your own. Over the weekend of 9th & 10th September 2017 we descended on Cornerstone OnDemand’s central London offices for an app hackathon – Cornerstone App Hackathon.
