As the world moves into its fourth industrial revolution - 'the age of technology', opportunities in STEM industries are booming. Knowledge and experience in these unique careers provide professionals with rare opportunities that afford a higher standard of living, increased job satisfaction and career growth. With the industry tilting towards male domination, the importance of the education and empowerment of women in STEM fields cannot be over emphasized.
In line with this agenda, STEM Women (an initiative dedicated to building a strong community of women in STEM) has developed a directory hosting a growing collection of resources and opportunities aimed at increasing the attraction, retention and progression of girls and women in STEM.
Search and discover a range of mentor programs, articles and tools to increase diversity at conferences and events, an array of girl in STEM programs, advice and case studies on changing workplace culture, local STEM networks and much more.
“STEM Women’s expanded functionality provides a place to share resources and opportunities that women in STEM have found advantageous to their own career,” said Louise Moes, Academy Diversity and Inclusion Manager.
“Many of the published resources were collected through a STEM Women community survey we conducted last year, and we thank those who shared their experience and resources.”
As a collaborative database, individuals and organisations can suggest resources and opportunities that will be reviewed and uploaded by the STEM Women team.
