What makes Anne-Marie Imafidon a Global Shaker?

Anne-Marie Imafidon MBE, CEO and co-founder of STEMettes, is a prodigy in every sense of the word. As the eldest child in ‘Britains Brainiest Family’ according to Sky News, her rather unique set of achievements include passing two GCSEs and A-level computing by the time she was 11.

Imafidon has counted herself among the youngest to be awarded a masters’ degree in Mathematics & Computer Science from the University of Oxford at the age of 20. She was also been named as the 7th Most Influential woman in IT in 2017, as well as being awarded an MBE in the 2017 New Years Honours for services to young women and STEM sectors.

Founded in 2013, STEMettes is an award-winning social enterprise devoted to inspiring the next generation of females into science, technology, engineering and mathematics roles via a series of events and opportunities.

Since its inception 6 years ago, it has exposed more than 40,000 young people across Europe to Anne-Marie’s vision for a more diverse and balanced science and tech community.

Recently, STEMettes teamed up with course provider QA to launch a series of free STEM Certification Academies to debunk myths and equip young women with the skills and certifications needed for a career in the tech sector.
