Celebrating International Day of Women and Girls in Science
Encouraging more young women to pursue STEM careers isn’t just tokenistic. Some of the most important scientific break-throughs in history were made by women, from Marie Curie’s discoveries about radiation, to Grace Hopper’s groundbreaking work on computer programming, and Barbara McClintock’s pioneering approach to genetics.
This February, organisations and people around the world are celebrating and observing the fifth annual International Day of Women and Girls in Science (IDWGS). The event, signifying the UN General Assembly’s recognition of the vital role women and girls can, do and should continue to play in scientific endeavours.
The natural gas industry is a champion of STEM education and diversity. The variety of scientific work undertaken by women in the industry is staggering. From geologists to engineers, researchers to technologists, women are a vital aspect of this important Australian industry.
Over the past year, Brighter has been a partner to Science and Technology Australia, supporting the program Superstars of STEM. This initiative brings STEM to girls all around Australia, including in regional and remote communities. Giving potential role models a platform is vital to all Australians.
