As a leading global specialty pharmaceutical company dedicated to female health, women are constantly the focus of Theramex's business. The company provides patient-focused solutions that care for and support women as they advance through each stage of their lives. 

With this focus in mind, Theramex celebrated remarkable women and their careers in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM). 

Celebrating STEM role model Ada Lovelace 

Theramex shone a spotlight on Ada Lovelace [pictured above], the world-famous mathematician.

Ada grew up in the 1800s and was introduced to the Difference Machine. This invention had the capabilities to add and subtract numbers and Ada saw potential in developing the machine further. “What if the machine could play music and show letters?” asked Ada. Ada’s curiosity led her to write the first computer program.

Ada secured her place in history as an inspirational figurehead and remarkable female role model for women in STEM.

"At Theramex we are embracing equity by empowering women to take control of their education and to strive for a career they are truly passionate about," said Theramex.

Theramex also celebrated the achievements of Ann Makosinski, a true trailblazer in the world of tech. 

Ann's remarkable career has been defined by her passion for innovation, and her unwavering commitment to making the world a better place. Ann's inventions, including the eDrink and the Hollow Flashlight, demonstrate her ingenuity and creativity in the field of sustainable technology.

"As a young woman breaking boundaries in STEM, Ann exemplifies the qualities of an industrious generation. Unfortunately, statistics show that women are underrepresented in STEM fields in the UK. Only 24% of women make up the core STEM workforce, and only 19% of girls take A-level physics," explained Theramex.

"As a women’s health company, we must continue to champion and support women in STEM and highlight their achievements, like Ann's, to inspire future generations of women in science to reach new heights and create a brighter future," added Theramex.

Theramex also introduced Cecilia Payne, the female astronomer who discovered what the universe is made of, but has been largely overlooked in history. 

Despite facing countless obstacles as a woman in science, Cecilia Payne shattered the glass ceiling and became the first woman to earn a Ph.D. in astronomy from Radcliffe College. Cecilia also discovered what the sun is made of and is the reason we know anything about variable stars. 

"As a women's health company, we recognize the importance of women's contributions to science and the impact they have on our lives. Cecilia Payne is a true inspiration and pioneer for women in STEM, let's celebrate Cecilia and work towards a future where women in science are given the recognition and opportunities they deserve," said Theramex.
