A natural progression from the Africa MBA Indaba, the STEM Conference and Career Expo aims to bridge the gap between STEM graduate talent and an entire world of opportunities.
In a country facing a shortage of STEM skills and unprecedented youth unemployment, we had to meet this challenge head on. It has become critical to close the gap and minimise the need to import skills at great cost to companies.
The last few years has seen a steady growth in numbers to our event and we are excited to announce the 3rd Annual STEM Conference and Career Expo. The 2019 conference will build on last year’s success of matching graduates in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics with forward thinking companies.
Our objective is to make recruiting technical graduates easier, more economical and in an engaging environment allowing companies to build their pipeline of young diverse talent.
Our attendees are university students and recent STEM graduates from all major tertiary institutions looking for exciting career opportunities. On the first day of the conference, we also invite grade 12 learners from less privileged schools to expose them to STEM careers and to offer university readiness seminars.
We invite you to join us to display the exciting career opportunities available at your company. You will come away inspired by the young talent in South-Africa and will have an opportunity to position your company brand as an employer of choice.
By supporting the STEM Conference and Career Expo, you have the potential gain BEE scorecard points through various initiatives and platforms on offer.
