Stemettes CEO Anne-Marie Imafidon, a newly minted MBE, believes delivery is the key to engaging young women in STEM. Claire O’Connell reports:
“2017 is already shaping up to be a huge year for Anne-Marie Imafidon. The 27-year-old entrepreneur with a passion for encouraging girls and women in science, technology, engineering and maths was named on the UK New Year’s Honours List, and the Stemettes organisation that she heads is set to scale up this year.
Imafidon heard the news of her MBE for services to young women and STEM sectors in November. She thinks she knows who nominated her, but the process is a bit ‘cloak and dagger’, and even after she posted the letter stating that she was accepting the honour, she kept the news quiet until she knew the letter had made it and it was all official.”
