International Day of Women and Girls in Science!

On Saturday 11th February, we are celebrating International day of Women and girls in Science! This day is an opportunity to celebrate and promote equal access to science for women and girls. 

Ahead of the 11th, we have interviewed five influential Women who fulfil STEM based roles across Randox Laboratories. They have shared their experiences and thoughts on Women and girls in the science industry.

Our fifth interview is with Marketing Manager, Lynsey Adams. 

Why did you pursue a career in STEM?

I have always been interested in biology and what makes us unique.  For that reason, I chose to study Genetics at Queens University Belfast.  I have been lucky enough to work in the life sciences industry ever since.

 

What is your role in Randox and how long have you worked in the company for?

When I first came to Randox 15 years ago, I started off in Technical Support.  I then progressed into the Marketing department and worked my way up to where I am today, to be the Head of Marketing. My role predominantly involves Marketing our scientific product ranges as well as B2C product offerings and sponsorships. Having a background in science has helped me to excel in my Marketing role and I am fortunate to be able to have the opportunity to do both the things that I enjoy and am passionate about.

What change have you seen for women in science over the years?

There has been an increase of women in STEM in general, whether that be more females studying STEM related subjects at university or exploring a career in STEM.  Throughout the years, I have been privileged to work with so many females in managerial and authoritative roles within Randox.

 

Have you found it harder or any different going into your career in science as a woman?

Throughout the years I have been fortunate enough to have female teachers and lecturers provide crucial STEM related education who encourage females to pursue a career in STEM. During my working career I have experienced the same opportunities as other colleagues and seen an increase in women exceling in science.

 

How do you think we can encourage more women to go into the science industry?

Awareness of the varied career paths available within STEM related industries would be beneficial.  The availability of work experience, placement, apprenticeship and graduate programmes like those offered at Randox helps to expose both males and females to the many exciting opportunities in the field.

 

If you have one piece of advice as a woman starting out the STEM industry, what would it be?

STEM is an equal playing field, so have confidence in your own ability and intelligence to get to where you want to be.
