We will shine a light on the amazing women who are breaking barriers, pushing boundaries, and making a significant impact in their fields. We will proudly showcase Ireland’s leading companies and organisations that are creating diverse, equitable and inclusive workplaces that allow every employee to thrive, regardless of their background. We believe that when companies and organisations embrace diversity and inclusivity, they foster a culture of innovation and creativity, and provide the necessary support for women in STEM to reach their full potential.

The Women in STEM Awards celebrate the incredible achievements of women in STEM in Ireland and will inspire the next generation of female innovators and leaders. We believe that by highlighting their accomplishments, we can encourage young girls and women to pursue careers in STEM, overcome obstacles, and make a difference in their fields. Join us in celebrating the incredible achievements of women in STEM in Ireland, and let’s work together to create a more inclusive and equitable world for all.

The Women in STEM Awards are open to companies, organisations and educational institutes of all sizes and sectors. Whether you’re a start-up, a scale-up, an SME,  part of a larger organisation, or working as a third-level researcher translating your research into innovative and commercially viable products, services and companies, we invite you to nominate and celebrate the outstanding women driving innovation in STEM.

How to get to The Round Room, Mansion House?

The Mansion House was conceptualised in the 18th century by one of Ireland’s great visionaries, Joshua Dawson. The Round Room was purpose designed in 1821 to receive King George IV. Remarkable political events have taken place here including the first ever meeting of the Dáil Eireann in 1919 and throughout the years we have proudly welcomed high-profile guests from across the globe including Pope John Paul II, Nelson Mandela, Queen Victoria, Prince Rainier III and Princess Grace of Monaco.

It was in the Round Room, in 1919 that the first Dail Eireann was held: Making the first definitive parliamentary move for home rule.  Seventy of the elected Irish representatives did not attend West Minister but pledged to the First Irish parliamentary meeting ever held in Ireland instead.
