The University of Edinburgh Women in STEM society aims to inspire and encourage current and future female STEM students through real life examples. Our goal is to share stories of successful women in the scientific field and empower women to break gender roles in the scientific industry. As well, one of our main objectives is to be able to provide opportunities to women studying scientific subjects by producing a network of powerful women who can support one another.
