AbbVie employees from their manufacturing sites in Sligo are participating in company supported outreach that’s focused on promoting science role models currently active in the Irish workplace. The company’s employees are aiming to drive greater student awareness of the rewarding career opportunities that can be unlocked by studying STEM subjects.

Last year, AbbVie employees visit schools and the company hosted tours and activities at their sites. This year, the AbbVie STEM team are hoping to showcase their work virtually.
