Harnessing our innovation potential: gender equality in STEM

Gender equality STEM education Engineering Mathematics Industrial relations Australia

This report shares new research, conducted by Accenture, surveying over 3000 women and men working in Science, Technology, Engineering, Maths (STEM) careers in Australia.

The data shows that while women and men enter STEM with high levels of motivation to solve complex problems facing the world, women are more likely than men to consider leaving STEM. Women in STEM experience significantly more barriers to progression than men and unacceptably high levels of everyday sexism, pointing to a culture in STEM that excludes women, minimises their contributions and devalues their voices.
