Sarah Chapman

Technical Manager and North Europe STEM Champion, 3M

A technical manager at global science company 3M and corporation board member at Farnborough College of Technology, Sarah was described as a natural dancer growing up and initially pursued a career in ballet. Injury and an inspirational chemistry teacher led to a change of direction and she went on to pursue a career in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths). Since joining 3M as an application engineer, she has won multiple awards for her work as a STEM volunteer and diversity role model.

She speaks publicly on the importance of diversity to drive innovation and has been interviewed by the BBC. Sarah chairs the 3M EMEA Technical Women’s Leadership Forum and is the STEM Champion for 3M North Europe.
