Description

The first of our new 'Maths For All' Guest Spekaers will be the wonderful Anne-Marie Imafidon MBE and CEO of STEMettes, on Wednesday 18 October, 4.30pm onwards in KLT1.

The talk will focus on Anne-Marie's journey into Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM), what inspired her to start STEMettes, and some words of advice for those looking to pursue a career in the STEM industries. There will be a drinks reception in Keynes Atrium following the talk.

The event is part of the University's Student Success Project's Inspirational Speaker series. It is open to all students, staff and members of the public.

Anne-Marie's exceptional set of achievements include passing two GCSEs aged ten (Mathematics and ICT) and being the youngest girl ever to pass A-level computing (aged 11). At age 20 she made headlines by being one of the youngest to be awarded a Masters' degree in Mathematics and Computer Science by Oxford University.

She was the UK IT Industry & British Computer Society's Young IT Professional of the Year in 2013, Red Magazine's 'Woman to Watch' 2014, won a Points of Light award from the UK Prime Minister in October 2014, and was named the 8th Most Influential woman in IT in 2016. This year, she awarded an MBE in the 2017 New Years Honours for services to young women and STEM sectors.

She is the CEO and Co-founder of STEMettes, an award-winning social enterprise inspiring the next generation of females into Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics roles via a series of events and opportunities. In four years just under 15,000 girls across the UK, Ireland and Europe have had attended Stemette experiences. As part of the initiative she has also co-founded Outbox Incubator: the world's first tech incubator for teenage girls.

Anne-Marie sits on the boards of Durham University's Computer Science Department, Urban Development Music Foundation and Inspirational YOU. She has previously worked for big names such as Goldman Sachs, Hewlett-Packard, Deutsche Bank and Lehman Brothers.
