Udacity, the digital talent transformation platform, announced today that its STEM Forward with Women virtual conference will take place from 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. GMT on November 30, 2021.

Opening keynote speaker Dr Anne-Marie Imafidon MBE, CEO of STEMettes, will delve into how people in STEM industries can foster and empower the future generation of female tech leaders by deconstructing the ‘HERstory’ of the tech industry, both past and present.

Sheree Atcheson, Global Diversity & Inclusion Leader and board member for Women Who Code, will join Dr. Imafidon to discuss her experiences as a woman of color in leadership and issues of privilege and underrepresentation. Her thought-provoking conference closing talk will address why we must prioritize inclusiveness for everyone, particularly those who are underrepresented in the IT industry.

The totally virtual conference is being organised in conjunction with industry leaders Microsoft, Saudi Telecom, KPMG, HSBC, and Sky, as well as government organizations such as the Edo State Skills Development Agency and the Digital Leadership Institute.

On the packed agenda for STEM Forward with Women, there will also be discussions on the following.
