Clinical Professionals invitation to “Perspectives on the Future of STEM in the UK” Webinar Series
Date: Thursday, July 2nd
In conjunction with CPL’s Future of Work Institute and Cpl Specialist Talent, the Clinical Professionals Group invites you to our UK based Webinar Series “Perspectives on the Future of STEM”.
During these times the world of work is changing for every industry, and STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering & Mathematics.) is no exception. As we are all beginning to adapt to this new world and ways of working, it is clear there are a number of things to take into consideration.
Throughout the webinar series we will be interviewing experts within STEM to gain real-world insights and perspectives across a range of topics including STEM careers, women in STEM, the future of STEM fields, education and how to address the current skills gap.
The series will be virtual, engaging and interactive sessions designed to assist with problems and provide you with practical tools and learning.
Clinical Professionals CEO, Yvette Cleland comments:
“Women have made a significant contribution to STEM for many years. Rosalind Franklin was involved in building the early foundation of modern programming and unveiling the structure of DNA. Work carried out by women inspired environmental movements and led to the discovery of new genes. They broke the sound barrier — and gender barriers along the way. Continuing to inspire women to STEM careers is essential in continuing to develop an essential talent pool”
