Event overview

Women make up less than one-fifth of Australians qualified in STEM. There are many opportunities in STEM industries with strong career prospects and high salaries so why aren't more women choosing a STEM career?

More women should be encouraged to go into STEM fields, however this needs to start right from the school years with girls enrolling in STEM subjects and understanding that working in STEM industries can be an attractive career choice.

Join CEDA as we host key leaders providing their thoughts on the importance of STEM for women to help build our workforce of the future.
