Plea on women in STEM at digital conference

NEWS: A Plymouth business woman, who created one of the UK’s most successful elearning companies, is urging employers to be open-minded about the skills need to be successful in technology.

Louise Pasterfield, owner of award-winning online learning business, Sponge UK, will be sharing her personal story of moving from fine art to technology at the Digital Plymouth Conference at Plymouth University on Thursday, September 8.

Louise will be hosting a conference session on Women in STEM (science, technology, engineering and maths) as part of the city’s leading gathering of digital professionals, organisations and educators. She said:

“People often think digital technology is only about coding and software development, but it demands a great deal of visual creativity. My tech story is not a conventional one because we don’t account for people who have skills and interests that cross boundaries. I love both art and maths, but in education you often have to choose between them rather than embrace both.”
