UTS welcomes the Women in STEM Decadal Plan
UTS welcomes the opportunity to take up the challenge as an institutional Women in STEM Decadal Plan Champion. Women currently make up only 16% of the science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) workforce in Australia. To improve this statistic, the Women in STEM Decadal Plan aims to encourage more women to the STEM sector (and keep them there), and to get more girls studying STEM subjects and support their education and career progress.
As a Decadal Plan Champion, UTS is committed to scaling up our existing programs and initiatives in the gender equity space as well as working towards implementing the suggestions outlined in the plan.
