Dell Technologies have strongly supported IWISH since its foundation – we see it as a terrific way to showcase at scale, the opportunities and role models that exist in STEM, at a crucial time for girls when they are making subject choices that will impact their future careers.

I really thought your panel of STEM careers and how these individuals got to where they are professionally was really great. Their personal stories of what they did and what they learned as they went through their journey was also valuable. It gave the students a sense that career paths are not always straight and one does not always know their trajectory.
Absolutely fantastic, thank you for everything you do! You are inspiring so many young women to do what they aspire to.
