Women in Science AUSTRALIA


Women in Science AUSTRALIA aims to connect women in science, technology, engineering, mathematics and medicine (STEMM) across every professional sector – education, research, industry, academia and government - regardless of their profession.


Our philosophy is "Pay It Forward" and you can learn more about how this all began here. Increased gender equity and diversity benefits everyone. If you identify as a woman in STEMM, or you are someone championing change in STEMM, then Women in Science AUSTRALIA is for you. Men are encouraged to join. We adhere to the highest ethical standards and advocate increased diversity amongst women in STEMM.


Our blog aims to highlight and examine the issues, but importantly to then extend the discussion to solutions. How can these issues be addressed? What can we do as individuals, institutes and at a national level? How do we encourage girls to pursue STEMM? How do we retain our talented women in STEMM? How do we increase the number of women in STEMM at the leaders in senior positions? Articles that propose ideas are welcome. We are also interested in hearing personal stories and perspectives, so if you are willing to share, contact us!


We also want to increase the visibility and profile of women in STEMM, so we regularly feature remarkable women in Australian science, technology, engineering, math and medicine at all stages of their various careers and professions - be sure to visit STEMM Profiles.


Together, we can do amazing things. Women in Science AUSTRALIA welcomes everyone to join this important discussion and learn more about the phenomenal women in STEMM Down Under!
