Help shape the Australian Government’s vision to increase diversity in STEM:
We are starting a conversation about barriers to STEM participation, and how we can break them down. Barriers can include assumptions and biases. We want to learn about your experiences with such barriers.
We welcome stories and insights from all Australians and organisations who have a connection to STEM.
To help us understand how we can support pathways for diverse groups into STEM, we especially encourage experiences and insights from:
- First Nations people
- Culturally and Linguistically Diverse (CALD) people
- women and girls
- people living in regional and remote areas
- people with disability
- people from low socio-economic backgrounds
- neurodiverse people
- LGBTQIA+ people
- people who face age-based discrimination.
This is the first step in our engagement. We will also engage with you to explore pathways, solutions and opportunities to increase diversity. Please keep an eye out for these next steps.
