The Funding Gap

This evening workshop will discuss the funding crisis amongst groups that work with and for women in STEM


This evening workshop will discuss the funding crisis amongst groups that work with and for women in STEM and devise a practical plan to financially support the essential work being done by grassroots and industry-focused groups.
For many years, we’ve heard about how the number of girls and women studying and taking up careers in science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) is woefully low. And for years, there have been calls to action, pleas for something to be done.
We’re now at a point where there are many grassroots and industry-focused groups are working incredibly hard to support, inspire and celebrate women in STEM. But despite their success, they all lack one thing: Funding.
This evening workshop will tackle this problem head-on. Using a facilitated, open space format, attendees will drive the discussion, defining their own agenda and then breaking into groups for in-depth conversations, before finally sharing ideas with all attendees.
This event is open to all, but we are particularly keen to see representatives of large businesses, corporate social responsibility experts, philanthropists, funders, grant-givers and charitable institutions attending.
