Increasing women’s participation in engineering education: actions for change

Educational expectation Educational achievement STEM education Women and employment Engineering Australia

This report outlines actions that schools, government and industry can take to:

  • encourage girls to participate equally in engineering, maths and science lessons and discussions
  • promote women as role models in engineering, maths and science, to show children what’s possible
  • create learning environments around engineering where girls can feel a sense of belonging

The report also recommends teaching engineering as a distinct learning area, not just as a part of maths and science.
