Dr Anne-Marie Imafidon MBE
Doctor of Science
Dr Anne-Marie Imafidon is a prodigy in every sense of the word. Aged 11, she was the youngest girl ever to pass A-level computing, and was just 20 years old when she received her Master’s degree in Mathematics and Computer Science from the University of Oxford. Since then, she has forged an enviable CV, including positions at Goldman Sachs, Hewlett-Packard and Deutsche Bank.
It is this wealth of experience and pioneering spirit that led her to co-found the STEMettes, an awardwinning social initiative dedicated to inspiring and promoting the next generation of young women in the STEM sectors. Since its inception five years ago, it has exposed more than 17,500 girls across Europe to Anne-Marie’s vision for a more diverse and balance science and tech community.
A recognised thought-leader in the technology arena, Anne-Marie is a renowned champion and inspiration for women looking to find a role in the world of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM). She delivers keynotes at leading companies and organisations all over the world, is listed as one of the BBC’s 100 inspirational and innovative women and is a Marie Claire Future Shaper.
Anne-Marie was awarded an MBE in the 2017 New Year’s Honours for services to young women and STEM sectors.
