Stop number four on our #MonsterConfidence tour was Bristol. On November 16th, Just Eat welcomed us and 33 girls for a day of confidence building.

For our keynote speech, the lovely Samira Abokor (Associate Product Manager, Just Eat) enthralled the girls; they were certainly left pumped for the day ahead! Just Eat, Aerospace Bristol and Mathematics Education Innovation partnered with us to boost the confidence of the girls and young women that came along. From speed mentoring to mock interviews to professional headshots, the girls had a fun-filled day learning how to prepare for interviews, present themselves online and be confident whilst public speaking. Our panel of inspiring women included:

  • Clare Marston, Aerospace Bristol
  • Nicola Grahamslaw, SS Great Britain
  • Chloe Allan, Just Eat
  • Christa-Awa Kollen, Just Eat
  • Emma Markham, Innovate UK
  • Rachel Beddoes, MEI

Twitter had a lot to say about the day:

In terms of impact…

  • 78% had increased awareness of STEM careers
  • 89% had increased positive perception of STEM careers
  • 89% had their STEM confidence increased
  • 94% had their STEM networks increased

Girls rated the event a strong 9 out of 10 and one girl commented that she had learnt ‘Confidence skills for presentations and I’ve learnt that there are a lot of passionate, strong women who have made it in STEM and are being “badass” – everything I now inspire to be’.
