Australian Academy of Science calls for input on Women in STEM 10-year plan

The Australian Academy of Science is calling for nation-wide views on the barriers and enablers that affect participation, retention and success of women and girls in science, technology, engineering and maths – STEM.

The expected outcomes of the Women in STEM 10-year roadmap are:

sustained improvements in gender equity in STEM; 
increased opportunity for women and girls to gain STEM skills and participate in STEM careers; and
increased benefits to business and society from increased access to STEM skills and a diverse workforce.

The Women in STEM 10-year roadmap was announced in the 2018 Federal Budget and its recommendations will inform the Australian Government’s Women in STEM National Strategy. Written submissions from individuals and organisations and can be made until 8 October 2018.

Consultation workshops will be held in each state and territory through September and October 2018. Find dates and venues for consultation workshops here. The Women in STEM Decadal Plan is being overseen by an Expert Working Group that provides independent advice. Read the discussion paper.
