Australia’s Women in STEM Ambassador is an advocate and visible role model to encourage girls and women to study and work in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) fields. The Ambassador works on a national scale to raise awareness of the issues that can hold girls and women back from STEM study and work, and to promote the opportunities available to girls and women in STEM, aiming to increase their participation. Through her advocacy, the Ambassador will help drive cultural and social change for gender equity in STEM.
