Talks will be delivered by women in a range of careers and from a variety of backgrounds, aiming to inspire young people to see the wealth of opportunities available to them in STEM.

This talk will be given by Gemma Hood, Sarah Rowland and Linda Hansson from Volume, https://volume.ai/, on 28th November 2017.
