The Data Centre Alliance support STEM Tour at DCW 2019

The Data Centre Alliance support STEM Tour at DCW 2019


The DCA’s role varies from event to event however, for Data Centre World London, we have provided consultancy and advice for many aspects of the show, these include the concept and content for the 6th Generation Data Centre exhibit, supporting STEM Learning with a student’s STEM Tour, advising on content for the conference programme along with recommendations for speakers and moderators.

We also support and promote the show to the general public and our followers through mailers and social media.

The DCA are particularly proud to have been involved with the STEM Learning Tour at DCW that co-insides with British Science Week. The DCA received a request from STEM Learning to assist with the tour and within a matter of hours we had arranged for the use of ABB’s VIP lounge and provided the Speed Networkers to support this initiative.  As a Trade Association we have a key role to play in helping with projects and initiatives that promote careers in our sector.

The STEM Tour will take place on Wednesday 13th March, approximately, thirty Year 8 students will be attending DCW to tour the show and take part in a speed networking session with industry professionals kindly hosted by ABB in their VIP lounge.

The aim of the Tour and Speed Networking is to raise the profile of the Data Centre as a potential career of choice. The students have been invited to various exhibitors’ booths to find out more about specific technology, they will hear about what’s it’s like to work in the sector, the types of role available and the choices they need to make in their options and going forward.

Amongst the professionals supporting the tour are:

•             Emma Beresford, Matthew Kaufeler, Eco Cooling

•             Simon Brady, Vertiv

•             Umaima Haider, UEL

•             Amber Villegas-Williamson, Uptime

•             Elliot Shaw, Eight6Seven

We are very excited to have supported this initiative and look forward to many more of these initiatives and hope it will encourage more of the Data Centre community to consider becoming STEM Ambassadors. Thank you to all the DC professionals for their support and to ABB for hosting the networking sessions.

The DCA also manage and facilitate a number of Special Interest Groups including the Workforce Development SIG, hosted by Steve Bowes-Phipps PTS Consulting. More information about this SIG can be found here. https://dca-global.org/groups/profile/593/workforce-development-sig
