Stemettes are proud to announce that Anne-Marie Imafidon, our ‘Head Stemette’ has been awarded an MBE for services to Young Women and STEM Sectors as part of the 2017 New Years Honours List, aged 27.
Anne-Marie is our CEO and has led the Stemettes team since she launched the award-winning organisation back in February 2013 – to inspire and build up the pipeline of young women going into STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering & Maths) careers, after discovering the falling numbers going into her industry.
Anne-Marie said she was ‘surprised’ and ‘honoured’ to be included. “It’s a well done and thank you to my team, our volunteers and those who have taken us seriously over the last 4 years. This is humbling and a sign of what is to come. Inclusivity in the sector and across society is important for all of us – it’s an honour in itself to do the work we do.”
What a way to start such a big year for us! We’ll be doing the first screenings of our long awaited Outbox documentary – Eat.Sleep.STEM.Repeat. – in February and will be launching our Stemillions clubs across the world. These will be the next steps in empowering a generation and influencing the influencers of that generation.
