VESKI Supports Women in Science & Engineering

29 March

veski is proud to be supporting the Women in Science and Engineering (WiSE) Summit on Monday 11 April in the Mural Hall at Parliament House in Canberra from 10 am to 4 pm.

More women are studying science at university than men. But they’re not staying in science. We’re losing them mid-career. We, as a nation, are not successfully supporting their transition into independent researchers and science leaders.

The loss of these highly trained smart women is economically and culturally damaging to Australia. And in the physical sciences and engineering we’re still further behind in achieving gender equity.

Far too few young women are considering engineering and the physical sciences as potential career paths. The loss of these highly trained, smart women means we are not tapping into our full national innovation potential.

The Summit brings together science and industry leaders, advocates, and high-achieving young women in science and engineering in a high profile event to: highlight the issues encourage science and engineering leaders to take practical steps to secure a higher return on their investment in young women scientists and engineers explore other opportunities to improve gender equality in science and engineering.
