Monster Confidence 2018 Tour
MONSTER CONFIDENCE Returns For The 3rd Year To Continue Supporting Young Women in STEM across UK & Europe.
Monster is committed to championing and helping up skill young talent across Europe, especially in areas where there are noticeable skill gaps such as Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM), which is why we created our Monster Confidence events, to make a tangible difference. We've teamed up with Stemettes for the third year to tour across Europe and meet young female STEM talent, bringing free confidence workshops, given by Monster employees, speed mentoring by women across the STEM industry and Monster's STEM customers, inspirational keynote speakers, free swag, food and lots of fun for the attendees.
What is Monster Confidence?
Research has revealed that women believe they need to work harder than men to gain recognition in the workplace. The Monster World of Work Confidence Insight report conducted by YouGov also highlighted that many young women lack the mentors and resources they need to build confidence in their current and future skill sets.
To address this we created the Monster Confidence tour and partnered with Stemettes, a social enterprise that helps connect young women with female professionals working in STEM careers, to run a series of free Monster Confidence events across the UK & Europe. Our aim is to inspire 15 to 22 years olds to explore career options in STEM industries.
At Monster, we passionately believe self-confidence and fulfilment are two of the biggest drivers of a successful career. There are simple steps individuals can take early on in their education as well as when they enter the world of work, that will help give them a confidence boost. We’ll cover these areas during our events and share insights on the blog for those that can’t attend.
Why We Partnered with the Stemettes.
"Partnering with a fantastic organisation like Stemettes gives Monster the opportunity to show young women, as they start out on their career path, that anything is possible and with a bit of help and confidence they can realise their huge potential." Sinead Bunting - Monster VP EU Marketing
What Happens at the Events?
We run various workshops on, CV writing, how to present with confidence and interview tips. Giving girls the confidence to strive in the workplace.
We have a fantastic group of industry professionals that provide 1-2-1 mock interviews, for all ages to prepare them for future success.
The speed mentoring is a brilliant opportunity for the attendees to ask professionals working in the STEM industry anything they want. What did they study? What was their first job? What challenges have they faced?
Inspirational Keynote Speakers
The Keynote sessions are one of the highlights of the events. It gives the young women the chance to listen to inspirational STEM professionals at the top of their game sharing their experiences and tips to succeed!
This gives the STEM leaders of the future the chance to talk to organisations and potential employers about the sort of jobs might be relevant to them and the exciting opportunities ahead.
This year for the first time we are offering all attendees free professional headshots helping them build a personal brand with Monster in their corner.
Oh and lots of fun!!
