Accenture teams up with Stemettes to showcase careers in STEM to 1,800 girls

 

Careers in STEMAccenture has teamed up with not-for-profit Stemettes to host a series of events, next week, to encourage more girls to consider careers in science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM).

Taking place on January 28th, across five different locations, girls aged between 11 and 15 will take part in coding workshops, and hear from speakers such as Naomi Mitchison, an IET Young Woman Engineer of the Year, and Carrie Bishop, director of Futuregov. The girls will also hear from representatives from the BBC and women in gaming.

The girls will take part in a hackathon, led by Stemettes, where they will compete using the Hakitzu Code Warriors game which requires JavaScript to choose weapons of choice.

The ‘Girls in STEM’ events will take place in London, Dublin, Newcastle, Edinburgh and Manchester reaching 1,800 students. In London and Newcastle, the attendees will participate in a crypto-analysis and code breaking workshop developed by the FBI to give an insight into digital forensics and cyber security. A virtual reality workshop and a Minecraft ‘hack jam’ which makes use of the Raspberry Pi and Python programming language will also take place.

The events follow on from Accenture’s own workshop that ran in January 2015 and was attended by 300 students.

Accenture and the Confederation of British Industry release a report last year which found despite the number of STEM vacancies rising, 46% of respondents reported a lack of skills needed to fill the positions.

AN additional Accenture survey revealed that 60% of girls aged 12 fell STEM subjects are too difficult to learn.

“It is a serious concern that girls believe that STEM subjects are too hard to learn, so the aim of our events is to showcase the applicability of these skills through interactive workshops,” said Emma McGuigan, senior managing director for Accenture Technology in the UK and Ireland.

“The speakers and workshops across the UK and Ireland aim to inspire girls and educate them about the amazing possibilities open to them.”

Olly Benzecry, country managing director for Accenture in the UK and Ireland, said: “By expanding our STEM events to five locations in 2016, we hope to encourage even more girls to commit to studying STEM subjects.

“As an employer providing STEM-based jobs, we are committed to supporting the work the government is already doing to ensure young people are excited about careers in STEM.”

"We're excited to be partnering with Accenture for the second year in a row to run such a large event for girls in STEM”, said Anne-Marie Imafidon, Stemettes.

“This year the strong attendance at so many locations shows the need for these events nationally. I'm excited to be bringing these girls on their own personal Stemette journeys, hopefully ending up in industry."
