Morgan Stanley and Stemettes invite you to a celebration of women in STEM. The event will be hosted by Head Stemette, Anne-Marie Imafidon.
Rocket into STEM is a panel discussion, Stemettes style!
It's aimed at young women, where we’ll discuss all the different ways people begin their Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths related careers. We’re hoping to explore apprenticeships, A-level choices, university degrees, work experience. You’ll be able to ask the panel questions, and network between each other and enjoy refreshments!
