Student Liaison Officer,
Antonia’s recent presentation at Stanford’s STEM Symposium demonstrated not only her vast expertise in her field, but also her steadfast commitment to advocacy. She spoke about her personal experience of prejudice, as well as the evidence provided by national and international studies.
Her talk was engaging, inspirational, informative, and vital for anyone seeking to improve inclusion in STEM.
Antonia’s talk was informative and very interesting, and well received by an enthusiastic audience. Afterwards, she lead an engaging Q&A discussion on some potentially charged subjects, promoting understanding and open-mindedness on all fronts.
Antonia is an excellent, inspirational speaker, and one we would wholeheartedly recommend.
We were seeking a speaker with expertise on diversity and inclusion in tech, to deliver a keynote at our annual conference. Antonia consulted with us, and delivered a custom talk, touching on our business’s specific strengths and weaknesses. It is now clear to everyone how we can diversify our workforce, and the benefits of doing so.
Antonia’s presentation had a huge organisational impact, for which I am very grateful.
