I WISH was founded by three Cork women who had a vision to profile the possibilities of introducing young girls in to the world of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM). The ‘founders’, having seen a major issue in the tech industry with its underpopulated female workforce and with many businesses finding it difficult to solve these imbalances due to a lack of females applying for these jobs.
Real Nation, being the market leaders in educational events assisted in bringing their on-paper vision to fruition planned and executed three years of this specialist conference designed to transform female student’s attitudes and behaviours to make careers for themselves in the male-dominated STEM fields.
Real Nation oversaw the event and recruitment of 4000 female students from Transition Years in 4 events in City Hall, Cork & RDS Dublin. The events featured dozens of speakers and exhibits from over 50 organisations the conference inspired young women to pursue STEM education; in the hopes of filing the ever growing demands for STEM qualified workers in Ireland.
