IET Venues celebrate International Women’s Day
Published:  08 March, 2019

This International Women’s Day IET London: Savoy Place raised the profile of women in STEM (science, technology, engineering and maths) through two exhibits which celebrated female trail blazers by showcasing their discoveries and contributions to the field. The hope was to create new female role models and to inspire and empower the next generation of girls into careers in STEM.

Guests visiting the exhibits can read more about the rich history of women in STEM and discover more about women like Ada Lovelace, the British mathematician and writer of the world’s first computer programme, and Katherine Coleman Goble Johnson, the mathematician for NASA, which Hidden Figures was based upon. The exhibit will be running until Autumn 2019 and has been installed in the Mountbatten Exhibition room and the Watson-Watt room, both can be hired as inspirational meeting and event spaces.
