Women+ in STEM Society
UCD Women+ in STEM is a group that promote gender diversity in all STEM fields (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics!). Our goal is to create a community among less represented groups within STEM fields here in UCD through our weekly emails – featuring a woman of the week, a breakdown of events for the week, amazing career opportunities, and much more – as well as in the running of regular events. Past events include panel discussions and careers workshops as well as more informal movie nights, festive study sessions and coffee mornings! We aim to promote STEM careers not just to our members here in UCD but to children of all ages via our Outreach programme! The society’s committee and members run outreach classes every week on a variety of topics, from colours to at home chemistry experiments. We have a very exciting year planned, with some events in collaboration with other UCD societies as well as with our sponsors in industry. Women+ in STEM is the perfect society to join if you want to take part in super fun events, gain access to career opportunities or meet really cool people from a variety of programmes across the campus!
