Empowering Women in the Triple Helix Model


This event has been joint organised by IEEE Women in Engineering UK & Ireland (WIE UKI) Chapter and CONFIRM, the Science Foundation Ireland funded research centre for Smart Manufacturing based at the University of Limerick.



Much international research indicates that women are significantly underrepresented in many STEM fields, particularly in fields such as enginerring and manufacturing. In Ireland for example, approximately 75% of the STEM workforce are men.


This trend is seen internationally also; as per AAUW, Women and Girls make up only 28% of the workforce in STEM and tend to opt for non-engineering disciplines.


This event focuses on women who have developed successful careers pursuing fields in Engineering, Science and Technology – leading by example in male-dominant fields. It also provides an opportunity for women to share their novel research ideas, experience and skill, through interaction with all stakeholders in the research ecosystem.

The Women in Science & Technology: Volunteering to Lead panel includes the top female leadership in nonprofit membership organizations representing the many facets of the science, technology, and engineering industries.


The discussion will focus on why the panelists chose to pursue careers in these industries and their experiences as women in science and technology. In addition, they will explore why they found it important to volunteer their time and talent and the impact women leaders are making across science and technology.
