The Women in STEM Ambassador is focused on gender equity issues across all Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) disciplines including natural, physical and life sciences. Australia’s first Women in STEM Ambassador, Professor Lisa Harvey-Smith is poised to lead the Government’s effort to support and work in STEM fields.
The primary aim of the Ambassador's role is to increase the participation of women and girls in STEM studies and careers. The Ambassador works towards achieving this by engaging with stakeholders across Australia to build visibility and drive needed cultural and social change for gender equity in STEM.
Professor Lisa Harvey-Smith complements the existing work and activities that are driving greater gender equity in STEM, both government and sector-led, and aims to improve co-ordination and national benefit from those activities. She works across all sectors including education and training, research, academia and industry.
