Our Events

Women in STEM Plymouth hold interesting and varied networking events throughout the year, approximately once a quarter. These flagship events feature inspirational speakers, have great support from local businesses and allow our members to find out more about the fascinating STEM advances happening in our area. They are also a platform to connect with teachers, lecturers and careers advisors, providing insight on what STEM careers involve and the many different pathways to entering STEM industries.

We also arrange smaller events and social events throughout the year, have an active social media presence, and encourage our members to engage with schools and other educational establishments. As part of our inspire agenda, we also run an annual careers fair – Young Women into STEM – which aims to promote a wide variety of STEM employers in the local area and answer questions from parents and children.

Lunch & Learns

Our Lunch & Learn events are an opportunity to discuss relevant, fun and helpful topics with other Women in STEM Plymouth members. They are generously sponsored by Plymouth Science Park – who provide one of their fantastic meeting rooms. The discussion is facilitated by one of our committee members or an external partner, but these are attendee driven events.

Lunch & Learns are an ideal environment for new members to start their networking journey with Women in STEM Plymouth but are also great opportunities for more seasoned members to ask questions and support our community.

Social Events

Women in STEM Plymouth recognises the importance of building your network. While sometimes that means listening to fascinating speakers at our networking events, or discussing topics in depth at Lunch & Learns, it can also mean just getting together with other like-minded individuals. Our social programme is designed to give you that opportunity.

  • No speakers
  • No pressure
  • Just good people, sharing an experience

We meet regularly, to have a drink, eat, see a film, or take part in one of the many activities on offer in and around Plymouth – all with other people who value gender equality in science, technology, engineering and maths as highly as you do.
