As a celebration of Ada Lovelace Day, Borough Belles Women’s Institute are hosting a panel focused on all things science, tech, engineering and maths, with a panel of amazing women taking us through the work they do and their experiences as a woman working in STEM. Panelists include:
Shwetal Shah – Shwetal works as the Head of Global Partnerships and Outreach at Erase All Kittens, an award-winning start-up creating a platform adventure game that inspires girls to code and teaches them professional languages. Shwetal was also named a UN Empower Women “Champion for Change” and is on the Forbes 30 Under 30 by Forbes Asia 2018 list.
Natalie Cheung – Natalie is a civil engineer with a background in the railways industry. Natalie now works at STEM Learning to improve Science, Engineering, Technology and Maths education in schools. She is part of the team which delivers the STEM Ambassador programme in London, which links those working in STEM to schools and children.
Ana-Maria Cujba – Ana-Maria is a PhD student in the Centre for Stem Cells and Regenerative Medicine at King’s College London. In her project, she is using stem cells and organoids (‘mini-organs’ made from cells) to model a rare type of diabetes called Monogenic Diabetes, in order to understand more about diabetes and contribute to potential therapies.
Ethel Cortegana – Ethel is a Chartered Geotechnical Engineer at Mott MacDonald with 8 years of international experience mainly in transport and mining projects across the UK, South America and Spain.
Women are welcome as guests for £5 (including refreshments) and can pay on the door or can become a member of the Borough Belles for the rest of 2018 for £10.25, which includes free entry to meetings.
