Ormiston Academy visit

On 8 March 2018 (International women’s day), two members of the Athena SWAN committee Tracy Lovatt (pictured) and Lisa Dikomitis visited Ormiston Academy, a secondary school in Stoke-on-Trent. They presented a one-hour workshop on women’s careers in Science, Technology, Engineering, Maths, and Medicine (STEMM).

The visit was arranged with the aim of inspiring and motivating young women to pursue a career in STEMM. Comment from a year-9 girl from Ormiston Academy, Stoke on Trent…“Your talk was so motivational, it has inspired me to go into the real world and know that women can do anything they want to...anything they put their mind to”.
