wistem global women in stem conference and awards

The WiSTEM: Global Women In Stem Conference and Awards event format is more comprehensive this year, comprising two full days packed with valuable insights, hands-on learning, career prospects, entrepreneurship how-to’s and opportunities for meeting an array of inspiring international mentors.

The 2016 event will introduce interactive workshops for the first time, targeting students and budding entrepreneurs, to discuss queries and misconceptions pertaining to STEM careers and start-ups. Another first this year, Industry-led tracks, will be focused on current hot trends, from Energy & Sharing Economy to Investing, IoT & Cloud Tech. Showcasing stellar women from across these domains will ensure the content of the conference remains rich and robust. Over the two days you will be exposed to high-powered keynotes from leading women from the region and an impressive line-up of international speakers from across the globe.

The Pitch, another thrilling addition to our conference, will showcase a battle of start-up and business ideas, and winners can hope to walk-away with seed funding for their dream projects! A concurrent Career Fair, another landmark addition this year, will allow corporate recruitment teams to interact with a rich database of candidates, both from universities and from the executive ranks.

The Conference will also bring to the region the immensely popular Mentor Dating concept, providing exclusive speed-dating opportunities for aspiring women executives and entrepreneurs to meet leading international mentors, one-on-one.

The event will conclude with the exclusive Women in STEM Awards night, honoring exceptional women in STEM fields from over the world.
