IWish is a city and regional schools initiative to inspire Women in Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM) supported by it@cork, Cork Chamber, Cork City Council, CIT and UCC
The idea, the dream, the wish, is to promote greater female participation in STEM, to ensure that Ireland maximises its talent pool and continues to attract high skilled jobs. I wish is about Choices, Chances , Changes – to show these young women the dazzling career choices available in STEM, the exciting chances that are there if they choose to take them and I wish is ultimately about change, changing the status quo.
Following an oversubscribed event in 2015, I wish 2016 will double in capacity to encourage 2,000 secondary school female students to not go where the path will lead, but instead to follow no path and leave a trail.
I wish will be held on 11 and 12 February 2016 in City Hall, Cork. See event details HERE
