John Innes Centre - Inspiring the Women of the Future
In April 2015, the John Innes Centre hosted the first Women of the Future Conference, at which female students from 20 schools across Norfolk and Suffolk heard inspirational talks designed to make it clear that girls can make it in Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEMM) careers. The students heard speeches from high profile women in Science, including Chief Executive of the Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council (BBSRC) Professor Jackie Hunter and Space Scientist and BBC presenter Dr Maggie Aderin-Peacock. They also met with role models from across the country, at various stages of their careers, who shared their STEMM career experiences.
