Female UWE students celebrate Ada Lovelace Day at NHSBT

Posted on

On 9th October, female students from UWE Bristol visited NHS Blood & Transplant’s Filton site, to celebrate and inspire women’s STEM careers.

Ada Lovelace Day is an annual international celebration of the achievements of women in science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM). It aims to increase the profile of women in STEM and, in doing so, create new role models who will encourage more girls into STEM careers and support women already working in STEM.

Students had the opportunity to:

  • Visit Blood and Tissue Centres at NHSBT
  • See demonstrations of the types of STEM careers within NHSBT, for example Research, Lab Analysis, Medical, ICT, Stats, Behavioural Science
  • Receive talks from high achieving women

According to feedback, “Everyone enjoyed the afternoon and it was really insightful”. This was a great opportunity for women to see the successes of other women in a variety of STEM roles, which we hope to see grow in years to come!
