The Federation of Kenya Employers (FKE) recently organized an inspiring career talk particularly in STEM ( Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) subjects and careers for Form One and Form Two students at St. George's Girls' Secondary School as part of its ongoing "Girls and Tech" project.


This initiative aims to encourage young girls to pursue STEM  subjects and careers. The event featured two esteemed STEM experts, including Dr. Angela Muthoni, who captivated the audience with her personal journey to becoming a doctor. Her speech, centered around the theme "Dare to Dream," encouraged the students to envision a future where they can achieve great success in STEM fields despite any challenges they may face. 

Dr. Muthoni shared her journey, highlighting the obstacles she overcame and the triumphs she celebrated along the way. Her message was clear: with determination, hard work, and the courage to dream big, these young girls can break barriers and excel in STEM careers.


The other speaker was Ms. Manuela Masaki who is an Accountant at Deloitte Kenya and also an alumni of the institution. Ms. Masaki encouraged the girls particularly on mathematics and gave them tips and trick on loving maths to ensure they thrive in the subject to ensure they have an array of opportunities when in comes to career selection.


The career talk was part of FKE's broader effort to bridge the gender gap in STEM by providing young girls with role models, resources, and the motivation to pursue their interests in these critical fields. Through projects like "Girls and Tech," FKE aims to empower the next generation of female STEM professionals, fostering a more inclusive and innovative future.
