Perspectives, Policy and Programs: An Empirical Analysis of ‘Women in STEMM’
October 20 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
International research shows that 75 per cent of the fastest growing occupations require science, technology, engineering, mathematics and medicine (STEMM) skills. However, a recent survey report said that almost a third of Australian women working in STEMM expect to leave the sector within the next five years. This loss is very significant and wastage of resources, talent and expertise with respect to nation’s growth. Although number of national policies and programs have been implemented to promote and increase the participation of women in the field of science and technology. There is need to understand the interplay of inclusive policies, organizational, societal and personal factors that exclude women from formal spaces in STEMM and impact of Government initiatives to bring back them/retain in main stream.
