Superstars of STEM aims to smash society’s gender assumptions about scientists and increase the public visibility of women in STEM.
Science & Technology Australia, Australia’s peak body in science and technology, represents more than 80,000 scientists and technologists and is an influential voice for evidence and expertise in public policy.
STA started Superstars of STEM to create a critical mass of celebrity Australian women who work as scientists and technologists - role models for young women and girls – and to work towards equal representation in the media of women and men working in all fields in STEM. Over 5 years they have equipped 150 women working in STEM with advanced communication skills and provided them with genuine opportunities to use these skills – in the media, on the stage and in speaking with decision makers.
