As part of the 2M STEM Outreach programme, Surfachem’s 2M Subsidiary has been supporting Science students and graduates to gain access to a career in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths).
We are delighted that one of 2M’s Science graduates, Joseph Gregson, working in the Surfachem subsidiary, has been short-listed for a Yorkshire Chemical Focus (YCF) “Graduate of the Year” Award 2016.
2M’s subsidiary, Surfachem, hosted six school students in our laboratory at the 3M Buckley Innovation Centre in Huddersfield. The students were all participants on the EY Foundation Smart Futures programme.
2M is proud to be presented with the ‘Highly Commended’ award by the Chemical Business Association for the ‘Community Interaction Awards’ at the 2016 Annual Ceremony.
The commendation was given for our efforts to help young people access Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM) careers.
Overcoming the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) skills shortage is vital to the health and survival of our industry. As a business with over 150 years’ history, we care about the long term.
2M Holdings therefore pursued a four-pronged approach in 2015 across our sites to ensure young people at each stage of early adulthood through to working age, have access to a career in Science and are inspired to join our industry.
