Astrophysicist turned Capgemini Software Engineer Beth Probert spoke at a Women in Technology event for students and graduates.

Encouraging students and graduates to be changemakers

The event, organized by Campus Media and run in partnership with leading employers including Capgemini Invent, was aimed at those studying a STEM degree or postgraduate qualification who want to find out more about technology careers.

Filmed live from The IET in London and broadcasted virtually, Campus Media's event encouraged students and graduates to be change makers and be pivotal in increasing the number of women working in technology and also become business leaders in the sector.

In discussion with student and graduate employers

During a panel session, Beth posed questions to student and graduate employers GSK, HSBC & Capgemini Invent. 

Campus Media’s very own STEM Brand Ambassador - Emily Pham, a final year student at the University of Essex studying BSc Computer Science - joined the discussion. Emily also founded the Women in STEM society at her University. 

Spanning across areas, the panel provided a great opportunity for the audience to ask questions about office culture, application process, career progression and more.

Passion for both her work and wider diversity and inclusion

As an Astrophysicist turned Software Engineer working at Capgemini Engineering’s High Integrity Software Expertise Centre, Beth's day-to-day work involves creating cutting-edge software that keeps people safe in their everyday lives and researching new technologies. 

Beth is also the Vice Chair of the WISE Young Professional’s Board, where she supports the diverse group of Board members with projects that aim to inspire, engage with and advocate for the current and next generation of women in STEM.

Her enthusiasm and passion for both her work and wider diversity and inclusion issues led to her recognition as one of the top female engineers in the UK as a finalist in The IET’s 2020 Young Woman Engineer of the Year awards.

“I stand on the shoulders of all the women who came before me, from Ada Lovelace, recognised as the world’s first computer programmer, right the way through to my female colleagues at work," says Beth

"I think we all have a responsibility to give back to the communities that have supported us so that they continue to support the next generation.”
