On the 8th of March at the International Women’s Day conference held in the Bernal Institute on the University of Limerick campus, the 20 WiSTEM²D Team Project Award winners were presented with their awards. This awards presentation embraces the importance of the University of Limerick and Johnson and Johnson collaborative educational programme to support and encourage female students to pursue careers in STEM2D fields. Through the programme, the female undergraduate students build friendships, networks and skills that they can use and will rely on throughout their progression as professionals.
The WiSTEM²D Project launched in 2015 with the aim of increasing representation of women in STEM2D fields. This initiative supports and inspires female students of all ages in pursuit of careers and their studies in STEM2D.
The project, in its third year is highly successful and has become a talking point at conferences such as International Women’s Day. The programme aims to assist female undergraduate students investigating issues that hinder female students participating in STEM at undergraduate level and pursuing a career in STEM field.
