We supported the Women in STEM campaign that launched on June 23rd within the Irish Independent and online at https://www.yourcareer.ie/campaign/women-in-stem/
Women in STEM looked at careers in STEM, mentorship and education and women returners and featured insightful content from Professor Orla Feely, President, Engineers Ireland, Gillian Harford, 30% Club, Dr Marion Boland, Science Foundation Ireland, and our very own CWiT Early Careers Co-Leads Joana Ganilho and Liana-Anca Tomescu.
In their article, Joana and Liana highlighted the importance of visible role models in the technology sector and how through this visibility, women can see that they do belong in this workforce and be less likely to drop out. They say that “this sense of belonging will prevent many from leaving and encourage our talented female population to reach their full potential”.
