Women in STEM

You can’t be what you can’t see. Women represent just 16% of Australians with STEM qualifications – and research shows that unconscious bias and stereotypes influence us from as young as nine years old.

Welcome to our women in STEM hub. Explore our coverage of the gender gap in STEM and read profiles of real women making important contributions in science, technology, engineering and maths.
