International Women’s Day 2019 – Celebrating Women in STEM
To celebrate International Women’s Day today we’re sharing the lives & achievements of the women in STEM participating in and volunteering at the Festival in 2019 across the festival’s social a media channels throughout the day.
Join us as we recognise these researchers, scientists, authors, broadcasters, advocates, leaders, champions, women throughout the day.
Don’t forget to vote the 2019 Queensland Women in STEM Prize.
Voting is open until 5pm AEST on Wednesday 13 March 2019. From astrophysics to brain research, drones, agritech and industrial biotechnology Queensland is at the forefront of scientific innovation.
Every day, our internationally-renowned leaders in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) are applying their expertise to ensure economic prosperity and enhance community wellbeing. Despite this progress, men continue to outnumber women in STEM industries. The 2019 Queensland Women in STEM Prize recognises the valuable contribution of Queensland women working in STEM careers.
