The STEM network allows employees to connect with other like-minded colleagues across the wider organisation, with the goal of supporting STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) events in their local communities.
The network aims to foster an employee-led culture which inspires, educates, and empowers future generations to unlock solutions to the world’s most critical challenges; encouraging pursuit of a career in STEM and highlighting the possible opportunities that this will bring.
Connect with young people throughout their educational journey; engaging in such a way that they and their support networks view a career in STEM as a realistic and achievable goal.
