Royal Academy of Engineering Hinton Lecture

5th November 2018

Prince Philip House, 3 Carlton House Terrace, London SW1Y 5D

The Academy is delighted to announce that the 2018 flagship Hinton Lecture will be delivered by Dame Stephanie Shirley, a ground-breaking advocate of women in STEM, software pioneer and philanthropist.

In 1939, Dame Stephanie came to England as an unaccompanied child refugee on the Kindertransport. Twenty years later, she founded a pioneering software company that initially employed only women, and was ultimately valued at $3 billion.

The lecture will take place at Prince Philip House and will be hosted by the Academy's President, Professor Dame Ann Dowling. A Q&A session will follow the talk, with an opportunity to network with other delegates during the drinks reception. For tickets please go here.
