Celebrating women in STEM

This month the Digital community is celebrating Ada Lovelace Day – a day to honour the inspirational women in science, technology, maths and engineering (STEM) in the hope that celebrating these women and the amazing work they have achieved will inspire future generations to work in STEM subjects.

Founded in 2009, the day celebrates Ada Lovelace; the woman regarded as the world’s first computer programmer who helped to build the first computer.

Women are still very much the minority in STEM, however here at Manchester Met we are pleased to showcase the work of women working across Information Systems and Digital Services (ISDS) teams to shine a light on the huge contribution women bring to STEM.

Meet three colleagues from IT Services and find out what working in IT as a woman means to them.
