I WISH is an initiative to inspire, encourage and motivate young female students to pursue careers in STEM. STEM can change our world. We have so many world problems to solve – food shortage, climate change, pollution, ageing population. These will be solved through STEM if you help us harness the power of thousands of girls to shape a better world.
I WISH (Inspiring Women in Stem) features a conference and interactive exhibitions. The conference also feature workshops, daily keynotes and engaging talks by women and men who have seen the opportunities for a great career in STEM.
I Wish has grown over the past three years. When it started out I Wish took 1,000 female students to Cork City Hall, in year two I Wish increased it’s capacity to 2,000 girls and in February 2017 I Wish for the very first time took the event national reaching out to 4,000 girls over four days in Cork City Hall and The RDS Dublin. I Wish have a further ambitious goal to increase their student reach in 2018 and to increase their reach again to 5,000 students
