During Coronavirus lockdown weโ€™ve been reminiscing about our Stemettes Future Summit. Our summits took place in both Chester and London in July 2019, and we hosted 200 attendees.

On July 11th 2019, in partnership with Bank of America we hosted the first Stemettes Future Summit in Chester. We were joined by 50 girls from local schools, including the Catholic High School Chester and Co-op Academy Bebington. The girls rated Stemettes Future Summit: Chester 8.9 out of 10. 

Day-long event to inspire and equip girls and young women for technical careers across academia, industry and entrepreneurship.
