CQUniversity would like to invite you to participate in “Advancing Young and Mature Women in STEM+C Education”. This event brings together STEM professionals, female students and industry partners for a day of sharing practice, swapping ideas, and building networks. This event is focused on Exploring Data Science, and initiatives aim to inspire and educate women in data science. The workshop will begin at 9.30 am and end at 4:45 pm. Your registration for the event is free. The event is funded by CQU, and we gratefully acknowledge their support.
As educators, we are responsible for shaping the society in which we live. Women are under-represented in STEM+C education, and consequently in STEM+C careers. Only3% of female students in higher education choose information and communication technologies (ICT) studies. However, these are not the result of differences in intellectual ability. This gender disparity is alarming, especially as STEM+C careers are often referred to as the jobs of the future, driving innovation, social well-being, inclusive growth and sustainable development. We, as educators, can help turn things around and close the gender gap in STEM+C.
