Girls in STEM
OPENING UP OPPORTUNITIES FOR YOUNG WOMEN IN STEM
With only 26% of all STEM workers being female there is a huge need to introduce and encourage female students into the STEM industries.
Girls in STEM (GIS) aims to introduce female secondary students into the world of Science Technology Engineering and Maths, giving them the exposure and guidance to pursue future studies and ultimately careers within the STEM Industries.
We extend our acknowledgment to the forebears, seniors, and kin of the Kulin Nation (for our Melbourne campuses), the Eora Nation (for our Sydney campus), and the Yulara/Yugarapul and Turrbal Nation (for our Brisbane campus). These groups are the original custodians of the University's lands. While we contribute our individual knowledge and customs within the University, it is important to honor the profound wisdom enshrined within the Aboriginal community and affirm their custodianship of the land.
We respect that the ground upon which we gather, learn, and exchange wisdom is steeped in long-standing ceremonies of revelry, initiation, and rejuvenation. The customary practices and vibrant culture of the Traditional Owners hold a distinctive place in the life of this area.
