IDEX Biometrics Supporting Girls into Electronics 2019
Oslo, Norway – 27 June 2019 – IDEX Biometrics ASA, the leading provider of advanced fingerprint identification and authentication solutions, is proud to support the 2019 Girls into Electronics event, being held at the Royal Holloway, University of London, on Tuesday 9th July.
Sarah Mathews, VP of HR at IDEX Biometrics said: “We are delighted to support the excellent work being done by UKESF to encourage more young people to consider the opportunities that a career in Electronics has to offer. The sector still has a long way to go in the quest for wider diversity, and existing technology organisations play a key role in encouraging broader participation in these types of subjects. The IDEX Biometrics team is very much looking forward to meeting the attendees at the ‘Girls into Electronics’ event.”
Stewart Edmondson, CEO of UKESF adds: “UKESF and the Smallpeice Trust really appreciate the support of organisations such as IDEX Biometrics. We simply can’t afford to ignore nearly half of the population if we are serious about tackling the UK’s shortage of Electronics designers and engineers. We want to ensure that everyone can explore their own interests and talents unencumbered by society’s expectations of them.”
