Why Science, Technology, Engineering & Mathematics (STEM)?
It is estimated that in the next decade 75% of jobs in the fastest-growing industries will require skills in STEM. However, enrolment in STEM subjects has been in steady decline in Australia.
While both males and females benefit from STEM knowledge and skills, worldwide females are underrepresented in STEM studies and careers. Only one in four IT graduates and fewer than one in 10 engineering graduates are women. Women occupy around one quarter of roles in the STEM workforce in Australia overall.
