L18 Empowering Women with Science & Tech

L18 Empowering Women with Science & Tech


Innovation, disruption and creativity are not the preserve of one gender, nor one racial makeup. If science and technology innovations are to integrate into and interact with reality in useful and valuable ways, they need to mirror the concerns of the audience they are aimed at.

The conference aims to inspire the current and next generation of females in STEM by showcasing internationally acclaimed female role models from a diverse range of sectors.

The event will feature speakers and panellists including TV presenter Sarah Beeny, Belinda Parmar OBE, Dr Suze Kundu, Dr Sophie Scott, Linda Liukas, Samantha Payne and Dr Pippa Malmgren.

The event will be hosted by June Sarpong MBE, a TV presenter with twenty years’ experience. In that time she’s interviewed such massive figures as then-Prime Minister Tony Blair and HRH the Prince of Wales, as well as hosted such events as Nelson Mandela’s 90th birthday tribute and the MOBOs.
