An ambitious new program to elevate the profiles of women working in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) has launched today, and applications are now open.
An Australian first, Science & Technology Australia’s Superstars of STEM program will train and support 30 female STEM professionals to become prominent role models for young women and girls. They will develop the skills to share their work with the public via social media, public speaking, and as spokespeople in the media.Participants will also be given the opportunity to speak with schools, connect with mentors, and attend events promoting gender equity in science and technology around Australia.
Superstars of STEM is supported through the Australian Government’s Women in STEM and Entrepreneurship program, and will be delivered in partnership with the Australian Science Media Centre and Women in STEMM Australia.
