Under the banner ‘changing the ratio’, Siliconrepublic.com has officially launched Inspirefest 2015, with 2,000 STEM professionals expected to gather in Dublin in June to promote diversity in tech.

Taking place between 18 and 20 June in the Bord Gáis Energy Theatre and Merrion Square Park, the event http://inspirefest2015.com/ is attempting to move on from the groundwork that has been laid in science, technology, engineering and maths STEM, and start a new future where people from all backgrounds have a chance of being the next innovator.
