Jesmond sadly and suddenly died in 2016. She worked
in several fields before joining the University of Greenwich, including production and broadcast for sound and image at the University of Hertfordshire. She built up a formidable teaching career as a lecturer in Digital Media with her main focus on the creative potential of coding to produce digital art. She was incredibly passionate about promoting STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics) to young women, using the concepts and skills from her work on the creative coding curriculum.

This memorial lecture invites eminent speakers, who share Jesmond’s passions, to discuss how to further those areas of interest and to ensure that her work is carried forward. 

For this inaugural event, we are delighted to have Anne-Marie Imafidon MBE as the lead speaker. Anne-Marie’s work on her pioneering Stemettes social enterprise group is a direct and powerful reflection of the ideals that Jesmond pioneered.

Anne-Marie is Head Stemette and co-founder of Stemettes – an award-winning social enterprise inspiring the next generation of females into STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) roles via a series of events and opportunities. In 4 years just under 15,000 girls across the UK, Ireland and Europe have had attended Stemette experiences. Named Red Magazine’s ‘Woman to Watch’ 2014, she became the 8th Most Influential woman in IT in 2016. Anne-Marie was awarded an MBE in the 2017 New Years Honours for services to young women and STEM sectors. She sits on the boards of Durham University’s Computer Science Department, Urban Development Music Foundation and Inspirational YOU.
