Meg Munn says Yes We Can!

Posted on March 2, 2015 in Events, News

Friday 13 March, 4pm – 6pm

Room 941, Centre for Science Education, 9th floor Owen Building, Sheffield Hallam University S1 1WB

Join Pat Morton and a panel of women – including brilliant handywoman Laura Birchenough – who work and study in jobs and careers not traditionally associated with girls and women, like construction, science and engineering.

Meg Munn MP has sent this message of support, “I am delighted to support this event and to encourage more girls and women to believe ‘Yes We Can’. Most people attending the event will be passionate about helping people and making a difference. Taking on a role in STEM provides an opportunity to make this passion a reality.

However if you have never seen or never heard a woman inventing something or fixing something, it can be difficult to dream about doing that job in future. My advice is don’t let preconceptions and stereotypes about men’s jobs and women’s jobs hold you back, have faith in yourselves, and believe that together ‘Yes We Can’.”
