STEM Alliance, Scientix & OneStream Software Webinar

Date & time: Thursday, 12 May 2022 at 17:00 CEST (Central European Summer Time)


On May 12 at 17:00 CEST, the STEM Alliance, Scientix and OneStream Software organised a webinar sharing the personal story of an Arts graduate who has started a career within the STEM field.

OneStream Software wants to share that a STEM career is not only for people who are strong in the usual STEM subjects, but can be for everyone. They presented the true story of one of their employees who first joined the company as an intern with no STEM experience. Her internship was so successful she joined the company full-time. Joined by two of her colleagues from different departments, together they highlighted through their experiences the many opportunities for non-STEM related careers within a STEM business.

At the end of the event there was a Q&A session for participants to ask their questions to the presenters.
