About Women in STEM Society

Maynooth University Women In STEM Society focuses on celebrating and empowering Women in Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM) related subjects in Maynooth University.

We host and promote many events throughout the year including:

  • Monthly Movie Nights

  • Panel Discussions
  • Guest Speakers
  • Chemistry Crafts
  • And more....

We are open to hear and include diverse underrepresented groups such as POC (people of colour), the LGBTQ+ community, and women as a whole in our activities.

To strive to encourage a wider and more diverse group of individuals to engage in and pursue STEM activities. As well become more confident about engagement in STEM activities.

Women In STEM enhances pathways that engage underrepresented women in quality STEM programs and education. We seek to ensure that all women from diverse backgrounds are represented and given equal opportunities.
