R/GA London and STEMettes have partnered for a series of events aimed at boosting the number of women carving out careers in the science, tech, engineering and maths (STEM) fields.

HR: Jenny Pigott

The STEMettes organisation aims to encourage the next generation of women to consider careers in the STEM fields and runs panel events, hackathons, exhibitions and mentoring schemes.

In partnership with R/GA London, 20 young women from two different schools will attend R/GA’s Rosebery Avenue offices for a day of presentations and workshops.

Jenny Pigott, director of HR at R/GA London, said: “STEMettes is an amazing organisation which encourages young women to engage with digital and take a long-term interest in technology – we’re really excited about this partnership.

“As a company, we’re committed to pioneering new innovations in technology for our clients, and we hope a partnership like this will only further help ensure that talented young women sustain an interest in technology to become the leaders of tomorrow.”

The event will also include a creative technology brief for students with prizes available for the best ideas.
